Are you using a bottling bucket? It's easier to prime the entire batch, than to go bottle by bottle.

No, I don't have a bottling bucket. .. So I'll be doing it bottle by bottle.

If you don't have a bottle bucket are you racking straight from carboy or fermenting bucket into bottle? If you are and have a secondary bucket or carboy avail batch prime in one of these instead.

Ok.
The *general* rule of thumb is 8-10 g per liter. That works out to be a generous teaspoon (1 1/4) per 1/2L bottle. Frankly i prefer 4g per bottle a a measure because my scale does grams :-)

All of this is subject to adjustment depending on what the beer is, how you brewed it, the style, etc, etc, yada yada.

TL;DR

Put a slightly generous teaspoon in each. That will (hopefully) carb at 2-2.5
