Do you want to measure the amount of seasoning accurately?

When a recipe calls for a tablespoon of melted butter, unless the recipe specifies to melt the butter first and then measure it, always assume it means that you are to measure the butter in its unmelted state. In measuring butter, ideally you start off with somewhat soft butter. Just scoop some up on a knife, and press it into the tablespoon. If it's hard butter, you may need to do it in small pieces, and press it in.

Measuring spoon measurements are always assumed to be level unless stated otherwise.

In spite of the nannying-zealotry some food writers will use in telling you that only precision-calibrated measuring spoons will do, very experienced cooks can use a coffee spoon out of a drawer and eyeball how close a quantity of baking soda in it is to an official teaspoonful. But even they would have trouble eye-balling when it comes to 1/4 and 1/8th a teaspoon.

Strictly speaking, the only way to truly measure a tablespoon of table salt is to haul out weigh scales.
