    A typical Cajun recipe, this is full of spicy, complex flavours. With lots of rice and vegetables, it is a great dish to make a small amount of meat go a long way, and offers a healthy balance of protein and carbohydrate.

    A Cajun twist on a classic stuffed green pepper, with smoked sausage, prawns and Cajun seasoning. Use smoked sausage if you can, otherwise a spicy Italian or chorizo sausage will work a treat.

    This is a spicy, warm and fragrant seasoning mix. It's quick and easy to make and tastes fantastic. The beauty of making your own seasoning mix is that you can control what goes into it, including salt. This Cajun spice is a lot less salty than the store-bought variety. Use this mix in anything that calls for Cajun seasoning, such as fajitas or chilli con carne.

    You could use almost any fish fillet for this easy but tasty recipe. Tilapia, cod, salmon, sea bass - they'd all work a treat. If you don't have Cajun seasoning to hand, try using a mixture of chilli powder, cumin, oregano, thyme and black pepper.
