Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning Recipe

Have you ever wondered what makes Hello Fresh meals so good? The answer 一 seasoning. It turns any course into a masterpiece, even if it’s a simple broccoli salad or French fries.

More than that 一 if don’t consider yourself a chef, then Hello Fresh meal kits can prove you wrong. They minimize waste and workload, helping you cook a masterpiece.

The only thing is 一 you can’t use that authentic flavor with any of your favorite recipes. But that ends here.

Today you’ll learn how to create a perfect Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning at home with no effort.

How to Make Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning

Unfortunately, HelloFresh doesn’t deliver their spice blends separately. And since you can’t find the readily-made fry seasoning in a grocery store, the only thing left is to make it yourself.

Since a few ounces here and there can turn fry seasoning from Hello Fresh into something totally different, the dosage of spices is really important.

You might be surprised but there are actually a lot of different options to make Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning.

Ingredients:

(2 servings)

 Variant 1:

Variant 2:

  • 1 part cayenne pepper
  • 1 part cinnamon
  • 1 part ground black pepper

Variant 3:

  • 4 parts ground caraway seed
  • 4 parts ground coriander
  • 4 parts smoked paprika

Variant 4:

  • 4 parts turmeric
  • 4 parts chili powder
  • 4 parts garlic powder

Pro tip:  it is more cost-effective to purchase the spices in a bulk store or buy them in large containers. Buying small amounts every time you want to make a seasoning is a bit pricey.

And you will want to make it again. Believe me.

Instructions:

Could there be anything simpler than making a seasoning? Probably not. But the result will wow you once you add this fry seasoning to complement your dish.

Step 1:

Place all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine them.

Step 2:

Taste the seasoning and adjust it to your personal preference to make it more flavorsome.

Step 3:

Place the seasoning in a mason jar and store it in a cool and dry spot in your kitchen.

Once your seasoning is complete, you’re ready to cook.

Perfectly-seasoned dishes await!

Ingredient Substitution

Though paprika, garlic, and onion powders are the main ingredients of the Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning, there are plenty of other fry seasoning alternatives that won’t make your dish any less special.

Salt

I know what you’re thinking 一 salt, really?

Nevertheless, the primary recipe of fry seasoning has a whole lot of salt. It is a number one ingredient. But if you’re not comfortable using regular salt, try the kosher salt. It has larger granules that will better coat your dish.

There is even more to explore.

You can also try garlic or onion salt, which creates a perfect sweet and spicy mix with zero calories. And you can find them in any spice section, which is quite affordable.

Lawry and Marton Seasoned Salt

If you only try the Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning, you deprive yourself of an opportunity to explore other substitutes. So, if you’re ready to experiment, consider Lawry’s and Morton’s seasoned salt. These are the big brands offering a variety of spices and seasoning.

Lawry’s seasoned salt is made of salt, paprika, sugar, onion, turmeric, gals, and cornstarch. At the same time, Morton’s offers you a mix of chili pepper, black pepper, salt, celery seed, coriander, and nutmeg.

Interested?

They use different herbs and spices from the original fry seasoning from Hello Fresh. But still, there could never be too much flavor.

Changing your perspective is a good thing.

What to Serve with Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning

Because of the name, some might think fry seasoning can only go with French fries or burgers. In fact, there is nothing that wouldn’t taste amazing with this seasoning. Fry seasoning fits perfectly with fish, chicken, veggies, or any of your favorite dishes.

So here are a few regular recipes you will see from a new perspective after adding the fry seasoning.

Potato Salad

Potato salad is the most simple and adaptable dish you’ll ever taste. At the same time, it is packed with textures and flavor.

And it takes no time to cook. Just boil the potatoes, slice them, and serve with the mixture of mayonnaise and vinegar. Spicing it all up with the fry seasoning will make your mouth water.

Fried Chicken Wings

Could gold, crunchy, savory chicken wings be any better? For sure, if you top them off with some nice fry seasoning of your own making.

You can hardly go wrong adding this seasoning to the chicken. It will only make it sweeter and more flavorsome. Too good to be true.

How to Store Hello Fresh Fry Seasoning

While you have to keep all of your spices organized to not create a mess, you still have to focus on the flavor.

Choose a Container

Even though all the ingredients in the fry seasoning are dry, it doesn’t mean that they can’t “spoil”. You have to keep the flavor going for as long as possible.

So, selecting the right jars for them is the first thing to keep in mind. It is best to store fry seasoning in mason jars in a cool, dry place with no direct light.

Note: plastic jars could be an alternative, but they can hold moisture which will affect the freshness of the seasoning.

Check for Freshness

Usually, the fry seasoning will last up to three months. Longer than that, it may lose its flavor. To check if the seasoning is still good, sprinkle a little bit on your hand and smell it. If it’s not very fragrant, it won’t serve you any good.

But there is still a way around this.

Revive the Seasoning

It is always good to use fresh spices, as they taste completely different. However, just in case you’ve made a lot of it, don’t rush to throw it out.

Just take a little skillet over medium heat and heat up as much of the fry seasoning as you plan on using. Shake the skillet every now and then for about three minutes until you notice a fragrant aroma.
