Cajun Seasoning Blend

Quincy L. Cheek, Bollich, Patricia A.

Seasoning blend displayed on the set of Jambalaya.

2 ½ tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon ground red pepper (or cayenne pepper)
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container to preserve freshness. You may also put the mixture in a salt or pepper shaker to have on hand at the table to season food.
Making this mixture at home is a good way to keep track of sodium in-take. Notice there is no added MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), a substance found in many of the “store bought” Cajun seasoning blends.
