I am planning to make jambalaya soon and so was looking up recipes for Cajun spice. This is a blend of several recipes and I nixed the salt. I am also going to try this on scrambled eggs and baked fish. Stay tuned!
Note: this blend has my parents breathing fire...their heat tolerance isn't all that high. If you don't like your dishes too spicy, cut back on the cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper.
Salt-free Cajun spice blend
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
Note: This would make a great gift! Put this in a cute (recycled) bottle, label it and spread the love!
