About this recipe: This is a mildly hot Cajun spice mix you make yourself with common spices from your cupboard. For those who like it hotter, add the optional chilli pepper flakes. Use it to spice up beef mince, chicken breasts or potato wedges.
This made great cajun spice. I used this to make cajun-mayo for cajun spiced burgers and made some cajun shrimp. I only used half the salt. I used the crushed red pepper flakes and we didn't consider this too hot at all. This made enough for both dishes and there is plenty left for a couple more dishes. Thanks for sharing Diamondlil, this is better than the store bought blends and I can control the salt! - 08 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Super, Bobbie Jean. Prezactly what I wanted. And thanks to reviewers who cautioned about salt. I agree, this mix does not require that much salt. I may play with this a bit to suit my taste, but, I don't know that I can improve it. Just a great mix that can be used as a rub, or used after cooking. Try it. - 03 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this cajun spice is great! i used 1 tsp of salt instead of 2. i've made thisa few times now, its easy to mixup the ingredients with different spices i just keep the recipe amount of garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne and red pepper flakes. it's great on potatoes, eggs, popcorn and tofu! i will always keep this spice mix of some variation on hand! - 10 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
