Equal parts:
white pepper
garlic powder
onion powder
ground red pepper
paprika
black pepper
cayenne pepper

Add salt separately based on the dish.

I like mine HOT. If you don't, use a half dose of cayenne and ground red.

Hi,

Please allow me to suggest the book, Marinades, by Jim Tarantino. It is out of print but a used copy can be found via a Google search.

There is a Cajun blend on page 97, and a whole lot more info on rubs, pastes, and marinades.

For consistancy try Paul Prudhomes > Its always the same. If you make your own it will most likely cake and lump, because you dont have access to silicone dioxide which stops this.. If you do make own use smoked paprika, much better.:chef:

Awesome book! I have a very, very old copy that has stayed with me longer than any other cookbook. The Cajun spice recipe you refer to has (this is from memory as I'm not at work)

black pepper
white pepper
cayanne pepper
kosher salt
paprika
garlic salt
dried oregano?
dried thyme?
brown sugar, etc.

The best Cajun spice recipes have herbs, sugar as well as pepper and salt, the sugar helps with the caramelising/blackening. Sorry I don't have the exact recipe to hand.
