Homemade Cajun Spice Mix

grilled cajun shrimp

Cajun Spice Mix

  • 1 Tbsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Ground White Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme
  • 1 Tbsp Basil
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cayenne
  • 2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 2 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Onion Powder

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. I always make spice mixes in large quantities, because I cook more than the average bear. Feel free to halve or quarter this recipe if you aren’t a slave to your kitchen like I am 😉

This is good on a whole lot of foods, but will blow your mind on seafood. Grilled Cajun Shrimp anyone? Why not try it with Homemade Cocktail Sauce?

    The basil was a surprise, and I’m looking forward to giving this a try. In fact, I liked your recipe so much, that it’s my Recipe of the Day.
