What You'll Need: (makes about 7-8 tablespoons)
tbsp paprika powder
2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp cumin seeds
4 tsp black peppercorns
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp onion powder
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp celery seeds
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your Cajun spice mix in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making a fresh amount.
Note: If you have a spare few minutes, dry toasting the cumin seeds and peppercorns prior to cooling, grinding and combining with the other ingredients will really draw out more of their fabulous flavours and aromas.
See the grinding page for further info on this. (Link opens in new window)
Note: I use a few whole spices for this homemade recipe. If you don't have whole available, simply use quality pre-ground powders and reduce the amount the recipe requires by half. So if it says 4 teaspoons of peppercorns you would use 2 teaspoons of pre-ground pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
