How to make Zaxby’s Fry Seasoning

Zaxby’s Fry Seasoning is a spice blend that can be used to season any fried food at home. The blend contains salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and black pepper. The seasoning is an essential part of Zaxby’s signature chicken wings, which are served with the restaurant’s famous sauce.

What is Zaxby’s fry seasoning made of?

  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt (e.g., Lawry’s)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients listed above, using a whisk or a spoon to ensure a uniform mixture.
  2. Transfer the seasoning blend into an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag, ensuring it’s thoroughly sealed.
  3. Your homemade Fry Seasoning is ready! Store it in a cool, dry place (like your pantry) until you’re ready to use it.

Pro Tips

  • Divide and conquer: If you’d like to prepare the seasoning in smaller batches or experiment with the spice levels, you can easily halve or quarter the recipe.
  • No need to skimp on flavor: Feel free to adjust the quantities of spices to customize the seasoning to your preferences. If you like it spicier, add more cayenne pepper; if you want a deeper, smokier flavor, increase the cumin. The possibilities are endless!
  • Keep your blends fresh: To ensure your spice blend stays fresh, make sure to label it for easy identification and note down the date it was created. Though spice blends don’t tend to “go bad,” the flavor profile may weaken over time.
