Once you have this cajun seasoning on hand, you may try it in everything.... Follow Me on Pinterest I found this mix when researching ideas for drying seasoned okra for snack food. It is credited to Emeril Lagasse of the Food Network. As with everything else, I find ways to tweak a seasoning to suit my own tastes. Surely, you do the same.

Now that I have this on hand, I find I am using it on everything: A sprinkle on roasted vegetables, in scrambled eggs, and anything else that needs some zip. It’s fun to have fresh flavors on hand for experimentation.

Cajun Seasoning Ingredients (from Lagasse)

  • 2 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

Additions

  • 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
  • 1 tablespoon dried sweet basil
  • 1 tablespoon crushed fennel seed
  • 1 tablespoon sumac

Try the additions one at a time to see what works for you and then even consider doubling up. This is fun. It reminds me of playing with watercolors as a kid.
