New Seasonings! I need good ideas for them!

So I went on a bit of a shopping spree this weekend and came home with four seasonings to add to my already inappropriately huge collection of seasonings. I am soliciting ideas on how to use each one. The seasonings I bought are:

Smoked Paprika - It smells divine!
Star Anise
Black Truffle Sea Salt
Saffron Salt

I am especially looking for ideas for the two salts. The smoked paprika I'm thinking of using in a rub or really in anything that I want to lend smokiness to. The star anise I was thinking of using for hot apple cider, but I'd like some other ideas there too. I think I may have a problem when it comes to herbs and spices, I can't walk away from them and my collection takes up an entire drawer in my kitchen and then some. I guess the first step is admitting you have a problem right? :)
