Cajun Seasoning

Cajun Seasoning – (recipe and video tutorial (coming soon) follow) – Now days, when you go to the store (like a regular grocery), it seems like the spice isle has more blended spices then individual spices. You commonly see things like “steak rub, Cajun seasoning, seasoning salt, pizza seasoning, jerk seasoning, southwest seasoning” and the list goes on and on. I think this is great and convenient except for one little thing. I feel like you lose control of your recipe. Let me explain. Say you went to the store to buy Cajun Seasoning. Then you bring your Cajun Seasoning home and you make some….. I don’t know – chicken with it. Well, one of three things are going to happen. You’re either going to love the seasoning blend because it’s exactly your taste, or, it will be too spicy for you, or not spicy enough. And of course this can be true of any blend except too much or too little of the spices that you like. Anyway, the point is that if you know what goes into different seasoning blends, you can make them for yourself at home exactly the way that you would like it to be instead of eating it the way that someone else thinks is perfect. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do think spice blends are convenient like I said. Not only that, but I also do understand that not everyone is totally sure how to make a spice blend taste the way that they want it to anyway. But at least if you have an actual recipe, you have a jumping off point. So, with all of that said, here is my recipe for Cajun Seasoning. I hope that you love it – and if not, feel free to adjust it :)
