Recipe: Cajun Seasoning – v1

Adapted from: Gimme Some Oven – Cajun Seasoning

Ingredients and Equipment
3 tablespoons cayenne
3 tablespoons paprika
7-10 kernels fresh black peppercorn, ground
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon thyme


Mix everything together. If using fresh peppercorn, grind it with a mortar and pestle first. Otherwise, a tablespoon of black pepper will work fine.

This has a bit more “kick” thanks to the cayenne, so feel free to adjust.


  • Jambalaya
  • Dry rub for fish
  • Dry rub for ribs
  • Ingredient for breading

I’m pretty happy with this. I’m glad I did the extra cayenne and reduced the salt. It’s a bit extra spicy without being over-powering.
