HOMEMADE CAJUN SEASONING RECIPE

WHAT IS CAJUN SEASONING?

Cajun Seasoning hails from the state of Louisiana. Though home cooks and restaurant chefs all have their own version, and they all consider theirs the best, one thing is for certain, they bring the heat.

Authentic Cajun spice blends are not subtle in anyway, and they are perfect for adding some major kick to all sorts of meats, stews, soups, and even Cajun Pasta. It’s a necessity for gumbo, Jambalaya, and Cajun Shrimp Bakes (and shrimp boils).

WHAT DOES THE BEST CAJUN SEASONING TASTE LIKE?

As I have alluded to before, Cajun spice blends are bold and flavorful. Cayenne pepper and black pepper are going to be your main source of spice. Garlic powder, onion powder, and salt will provide the savoriness you taste in gumbo. And there is an earthy kick from the oregano and thyme.

CAN YOU MAKE HOMEMADE CAJUN SPICE MIX AHEAD OF TIME?

Absolutely! I like to have a jar of this all sorts of homemade spices and seasoning on hand for whenever the craving strikes. As a rule of thumb, when making spice blends: the earliest expiration date on your ingredients is now the new expiration date for your homemade Cajun spice mix.

CAN YOU FREEZE CAJUN SEASONING?

Though it is not necessary to freeze this Cajun spice mix, you can store it in the freezer. If you do, make sure it is an airtight, freezer-safe container to keep the original flavors fresh.
