Classic Cajun Seasoning Blend Recipe
Makes about 1 – 1/3 cups
4 tablespoons sea salt
4 tablespoons paprika
3 tablespoons garlic granules (cut in half if using powder)
1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons onion granules (cut in half if using powder)
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons dried thyme leaves, crushed
2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves, crushed
2 tablespoons dried parsley leaves, crushed
Blend all ingredients in a bowl. Store in airtight containers or jars away from light or heat.
If cayenne pepper makes you nervous, cut the amount in half and a give it a try. You can always add more.
For a finer texture, pour all ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times. I have an inexpensive electric coffee grinder that I use exclusively for grinding herbs and spices. It is handier to use than a bulky food processor and just requires a quick wipe with a paper towel to clean!
