This blend is great for seasoning rice, meats, soups and stews, or anything that benefits from a spicy Creole flavour. It would also make a great gift when placed in a decorative jar with a good recipe attached.
Altered ingredient amounts. I only use about a about a tsp of salt and really hot cayenne - 08 Nov 2009
This is fab I have been looking for a recipe I like as much as this for ages. I make it with really hot cayenne brilliant! - 08 Nov 2009
I've made this as elementary school teacher gifts for the past two years, and the teachers love it. I omit the cayenne and halve the amount of black pepper, then call it "Kid Friendly Creole Seasoning." I keep a batch of this in my cabinet and use it in many things: steak on the grill, baked chicken, in soups and stews, while cooking ground turkey or ground beef; anytime a little kick is needed. I even used it on my Thanksgiving turkey. Thanks for the recipe! Even my picky 6-yr old and 8-yr old kids eat this. Note: to reduce the salt, use Kosher salt; gives it a nice texture without as much salty taste. - 27 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
