What is Cajun Seasoning?

You know that unique flavor that you find while dining on the local cuisine in Louisiana? That’s Cajun Seasoning! Generally speaking, it’s a savory blend of garlic, peppers, and paprika (which gives it the rusty red color). Most people change theirs up to make it “special.”

You’ll find this recipe to be a more traditional flavor blend. Having said that, although they are similar, this Cajun Seasoning blend is different from old bay seasoning.

Ingredients

Can I make my Cajun Blend hotter? Sure! You can increase the spice level by adding additional cayenne pepper to your mix.

Can I make substitutions? You bet! Using an herb and garlic seasoning blend in this recipe cuts down on the number of spices you’ll need and adds great flavor to your blend.

Is there a way to cut the sodium? Absolutely! You can reduce the salt if you’re watching your sodium consumption.

How do I use this blend in a recipe? Just give your jar a good shake before using to ensure none of the spices have settled.

How do I store Cajun Seasoning? Store your seasoning blend in an airtight container for a couple of months. Make sure to store it in a cool, dry location so you spices don’t start to clump together.
