Founder Tony Lazarus

The Key West Spice Company came about after years of practicing the hobby of sharing my homemade seasoning blends with family and friends.

The real joy came when people would tell me they were cooking more as a result of having my seasoning in their kitchen. Then it became a gift that they too would share with their family and friends.

I created the Key West Spice Company with the sole purpose of making the same seasoning blends that I have been sharing for years, available for more people.
Key West and the Florida Keys are unique in many ways. The Keys have always been known for some of the worlds greatest seafood that is harvested daily from our local waters. Good fish deserves a good seasoning.

The area also is a place that does a tremendous job of sharing itself with the rest of the world. The finished product makes a great gift for our friends who live here, but also for those who visit and want to take something from Key West back home to share.
Spices have been traded for years, once even considered as a currency. It is said that one of the motivations for Columbus discovering the New World was for a better route for trading spices.

Our current products are Southernmost Blend, Island BBQ, Key Lime Seasoning, Seafood Seasoning, and Island Grill.

Southernmost Blend is an all-purpose seasoning. It can be used to add flavor and enhance seafood, as well as other meats and vegetables. It contains no MSG, no additives, no preservatives, it is 100% all natural, and has a low content of sodium compared to most other seasonings at 65 mg per ¼ teaspoon.

Island BBQ is your classic BBQ rub. It has a flavor profile similar to that of the Southernmost Blend with the addition of brown sugar and a couple of other tweaks that make it an awesome BBQ rub. It is all natural contains no MSG, no additives, no preservatives and is reduced in salt.

Key Lime Seasoning adds a tropical citrus flavor that can only come from Key West. This seasoning adds Key Lime flavor to shrimp, pork, seafood, and chicken dishes. Excellent for rimming your next margarita. The Key Lime Seasoning is all natural, contains, no MSG, and no preservatives.

Seafood Seasoning is a perfect match made in paradise for all things seafood. A true seafood seasoning created for fish, shrimp, lobster, and scallops. The ideal seafood seasoning for steaming, blackening, grilling, baking, or broiling. It’s excellent on popcorn and when mixed with bread crumbs when frying. The Seafood Seasoning is all natural, contains no MSG, no additives, and no preservatives.

Island Grill brings island grilled flavor with a subtle smokiness. Island Grill is the meat lovers seasoning. Flavored with natural apple wood smoke flavor. Specifically designed for steaks, chops, chicken, lamb, and veal. Island Grill is all natural, contains no MSG, no additives, and no preservatives.

All our spices are professionally blended and packaged at a commercial spice blending facility here in the USA.

The natural nature of our spices do not spoil, but over time just tend to lose their “zip” with exposure to air and sunlight.

I welcome any questions you may have and hope our products find their way into your kitchen and the kitchens of your friends, family, and loved ones.

Thank you,
Tony Lazarus
Key West, Florida.
