Cajun Seasoning

One thing I was shocked to learn is that there are a lot of extra fillers in almost everything that we eat. Sugar is hidden in EVERYTHING! I was extremely surprised when there was sugar listed in my favorite cajan spice. Even though the amount of sugar inside the spice is so small, I decided to see if I could create my own recipe.

Now I am not one to enjoy the sweat dripping down your nose as you eat a spicy cajun dish. This mix is a mildy-hot seasoning. If you do love the heat, add the additional red pepper flakes at the end.

Cajun Seasoning MixCajan Spice

  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 4 oz jar for storage

Add all spices to the jar and mix well!

I use this spice all the time because I love Cajun Food. My favorite recipe using this spice is my Cajun Cocoanut Shrimp. I could see using this mixture to spice up chicken or rice as well.

Enjoy!
