Cajun Seasoning is a fantastic herb and spice blend to keep on hand for quick and easy dinners. Use as much or as little as you’d like to add hot Cajun flavor to your next meal. Great for adding flavor to chicken, seafood, pasta, sauces, and veggies.
Cajun Seasoning is a must-have seasoning blend to keep in your spice cabinet. It is hot with a little spice, and goes great on just about anything you can cook up.
I like to use my Cajun seasoning on chicken, pasta sauces (it pairs well with cream sauces), as well as roasted veggies. You can also use this spice blend to make your own Cajun mayonnaise or add some heat to your ranch dressing.
There are plenty of seasoning blends available at the grocery store. But, it’s just as easy to make your own using the herbs and spices you already have on hand at home.
Plus, you get to control how hot or mild your Cajun seasoning is based on your personal tastes. I’ve made a few other seasoning mixes as well, like my Everyday Seasoning, Homemade Spicy Taco Seasoning, and Ranch Seasoning. Easy to make, fun to customize.
I chose to exclude salt from this blend so that you can more easily control the amount of salt in your recipes. Depending on the other ingredients used, like chicken broth or salted butter, for example, you may not want to add more salt.
So, by leaving it out of the blend, you can add your own as needed. If you’re looking to reduce salt in your diet, this Cajun Seasoning works great to add flavor without extra sodium.
