  • 2 Tablespoons whole peppercorns
  • 2 Tablespoons smoked paprika optional, if you want "Smoky Montreal Seasoning"
  • 2 Tablespoons Kosher salt or coarse sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dehydrated onion or onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons whole coriander seed
  • 2 teaspoons whole mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes


  • Combine the peppercorns, salt, and paprika (optional) in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder. Blend until the peppercorns have almost all broken apart. Add in the rest of the seasonings and blend again until well combined.
  • Transfer to an airtight jar. The flavors are the best if used immediately, but the blend can be stored at room temperature and used for several months.  Great on steaks, roasts, burgers, and more!



If you want this seasoning to taste more like the McCormick store bought version of Montreal Steak seasoning, I recommend skipping the smoked paprika and DOUBLING the dried dill. Enjoy!
