Recipe: Make Your Own Cajun Seasoning Blend

SeasoningFrom Denny: Slap Ya Mama seasoning - it's so good it makes you want to slap ya Mama - comes from Lafayette, Louisiana and is about equal parts salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Use sparingly. Great stuff and well loved by folks in Lafayette! Image by CooLFreaK via Flickr

From Denny: While there are many variations on this theme, this is a good basic version from which to start your own experimentation!

Use for any blackened fish or chicken recipe, sprinkle some in your boiled or sauteed greens, place it into your fried catfish flour seasoning, put it on pork chops before they go on the grill or a little on your steak after searing it on the stove and then placing into the oven to finish. The uses for this versatile seasoning are virtually limitless.

From CBS' Chow.com:


6 tablespoons paprika

1/4 cup kosher salt

2 tablespoons ground black pepper

2 tablespoons ground white pepper

2 tablespoons garlic powder

2 tablespoons onion powder

1 tablespoon dried thyme

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper


Combine paprika, salt, black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and cayenne.
