Cajun Seasoning for Cajun Recipes

Make your own Cajun seasoning with spices and herbs.

Cajun recipes get their distinct flavor from a mixture of Cajun spices. You can find lots of different Cajun seasoning recipes, but of course, I like my seasoning recipe best! It’s easy to make your own dry Cajun seasoning mix for Cajun recipes. If you and your family enjoy Cajun foods, this mix will come in handy! It’s great on any Cajun recipes, fish, and chicken, and I sometimes even add it to veggies and scrambled eggs. It’s wonderful for grilling, too. If you make a big batch of Cajun seasoning and store it in a jar, you’ll have it on hand whenever want to do some Cajun cooking.

If this mix isn’t to your liking, or if you don’t want to go to the trouble of making your own, there are some very good commercial Cajun seasoning mixes on the market.
