I am a LOVER of making my own spice and seasoning mixes. The fact that it doesn’t contain any nasties and that you can keep it in a jar is the best. I love using this with raw prawns and grilling them. You can also use this mix with chicken, steak, fish, vegetables…. Ahhh the list is endless.

cajun seasoning mix


2 tablespoons sweet paprika

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon granulated onion or onion powder

1 tablespoon granulated garlic or garlic powder

1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a jar. Place the lid on and give it a good shake. 


Tips & Substitutions:

  • Pairs beautifully with chicken, beef, pork, fish, vegetables.
  • I generally add about 1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to approximately 500 grams of protein/vegetables.
  • Keep seasoning in an airtight jar/container out of moisture zones and it should last you months.
