Homemade Cajun seasoning is a simple blend of some basic ingredients you already have on hand.
Homemade Cajun Seasoning
To make this blend here’s what you need:
- 1 Tb salt (optional)
- 1 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp oregano
Stir it up, and store it in an air-tight container. That’s it!
Here’s the great thing about making your own spice blends: If you are on a sodium restricted diet, you can simply omit the salt in this blend. That gives you more control over the salt that goes into your foods. Honestly, I now make this without the salt and simply add any salt as needed to whatever recipe I am making.
