Homemade Cajun Mix

This seasoning recipe is the mix for you if you're into cooking pan-blackened food. Even if you're not, it still makes a great seasoning for adding flavour to soups, stews, sauces, grilled meats and roasts. It also makes a decent dry rub for steak, pork, fish and corn.

Makes about 10 tbsp

3 tbsp paprika powder
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp celery seeds
2 tsp salt
6 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the bay leaves, salt, celery seeds and peppercorns

  • Once ground add to a bowl

  • Add the cayenne pepper, paprika, mustard and garlic powders to the bowl and combine

  • Finally crumble in the dried oregano and parsley and combine again

That's all there is to it!

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
