Fun fact about me, I love Cajun food! (Like loveee it!) Anything spicy with big bold flavors just speaks to me on a whole other level. And this seasoning here is without doubt the BEST cajun seasoning you will ever make! (That was a bit of a bold statement BUT it’s a bold seasoning so…it deserves it!😉)

Ingredients for your Cajun Seasoning

  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder: I used what’s usually called “granulated garlic” for mine. It’s not quite as fine as some garlic powders.
  • Salt: Regular table salt or sea salt both work for this recipe.
  • Black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Onion powder: Same as the garlic, I use granulated onion for my seasoning.
  • Dried thyme
  • Dried oregano
  • Crushed red pepper

How To Make Cajun Seasoning

Simply mix your ingredients together in a bottle or jar then cover it with a lid. Your seasoning should stay good for a few months.

How Do I Use Cajun Seasoning?

Ohh my favorite question! It’s good on so many things! I usually use it as a dry rub for chicken but it’s also tasty with these too!

  • Protein: Salmon, shrimp, pork chops, chicken wings, any type of kabobs or baked foil packets are yummy with it too!
  • Veggies: Roasted corn, broccoli, potatoes, etc. (Potatoes are my favorite! You can even sprinkle a little in your breakfast hash for a fun kick!)
  • Chips & crackers: It’s delicious sprinkled over homemade tortilla chips or pita chips!
