Put the butter in a microwave-safe container and microwave for 15-25 seconds, depending on how much butter you're using. Then take the seeds and place them evenly across the pan. Spread the butter across the seeds thoroughly and gently sprinkle seasoning salt over everything. Keep in mind that too much seasoning salt steals the flavor from the seeds and can ruin them.
