  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Coarsely grind coriander, fennel, oregano, and red pepper flakes in an electric coffee/spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Stir together spices and salt.
