Homemade Cajun Spice

Oh summertime...the heat is upon us here, and our days are filled with finding ways to cool down.  Popsicles, the beach, sprinklers, and of course, air conditioning.  The latter is probably why my hubby and I have been craving spicy food.  Last week we went for Indian with friends, this week, we are looking for something cajun.  We're making some Cajun Halibut Burgers for dinner this week (recipe to come!) and I decided to see if I could make my own cajun spice from my current spice cabinet, rather than picking up another bottle of spice :-)  Low and behold, I found several recipes, and here is the recipe that I used:

2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/4 teaspoons oregano
1 1/4 teaspoons thyme
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Store in an airtight container.

I tasted the spice before using it in my mama!  Spicy but goooooood!


  1. THis rub sounds great. I want to try it on a whole roast chicken.

  2. This sounds like a great homemade cajun spice mix. Can't wait to try it out!
