Creole Seasoning Mix - Enjoy the Traditional
Flavours and Aromas of Louisiana

Creole cooking is a melting pot of cuisines: Spanish, French, Portugese and Italian  to name just a few. And a homemade Creole seasoning mix will allow you to enjoy the authentic flavours of some of these traditional dishes. Jambalaya, gumbo, shrimp Creole and rice and gravy are just a few you could try. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 10 tablespoons)

4 tbsp sweet paprika powder (or regular paprika)
3 tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp celery seeds
2 tsp sea salt
6-8  dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the bay, salt, celery and peppercorns
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Stir in the cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic powders
  • Crumble in the basil and oregano. Stir again

Store in an airtight container in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making a fresh lot.

I use whole peppercorns and celery seeds for this Creole seasoning. If you only have pre-ground powders, use these and reduce the quantity the recipe says by about half. So for 2 teaspoons of peppercorns you would use 1 teaspoon of ground pepper. Same goes for the celery seeds.
