Cajun Spice Blend

Paprika peppers

Everyone seems to love the flavours of Cajun dishes. Cajun chicken is a particular favourite, but the flavours work well on just about any meat, fish or vegetables too. I experimented with many mixes of herbs and spices before finding that this blend really hits the spot.

This spice mix has a mild heat.

Simply mix the seasoning with a little oil to make a loose paste, rub it onto your chicken, vegetable kebabs, chops or fish – whatever you fancy – then leave it to marinate for up to an hour. Cook in the usual way – roast, grill, barbecue or fry. Allow 1 teaspoon of the spice mix per portion.

2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp cayenne chilli powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
2 ½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt

Mix all of the ingredients together and store in a spice jar until needed.
