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 Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cayenne
  • 2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 2 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic 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 ūüėČ

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?

These are excellent with mashed potatoes and a steamed vegetable. I like the hint of spiciness in the cream gravy. This method also keeps the pork chops tender. There is nothing worse than a dried out nasty pork chop ūüôā
