Cajun Seasoning Mix

ᛎ Jump to recipe

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

Cooking Time: 10 minutes | Servings: 1/2 cup


  • 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.


    • 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.
