Cajun Seasoning

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm a bit tired of the McCormick Cajun Seasoning I get from sysco. It just seems a little flat. Anyone care to share their cajun or spicy seasoning recipes? I'm experimenting right now, but any alternate starting points or secret ingredients would be much appreciated!

good cajun

This is my first post, but i am a fan of cajun cooking and have found a good spice. I don't know if you have any president's choice products in your area, but they have a selection of unground spices that come in a grounder. One is the cajun which is quite good. I personally like to add a little extra cayan pepper to it when i am cooking for a little extra spice, but it's up to you.

hope this helps.

I think I colleced about 9 different Cajun seasoning recipes. I made them all and after much taste testing and milk drinking... the following one is my favorite. It's all in proportions, which is really nice. The proportions are by volume not weight.

Paprika 2 1/2 units
Salt 2 units
Garlic Powder 2 units
Black Pepper 1 units
Onion Powder 1 units
Cayenne Pepper 1 units
Dried Oregano 1 1/4 units
Dried Thyme 1 1/4 units
Crused Red Pepper 1/2 units

I hope someone else finds this useful!
