Cajun Seasoning

cajun seasoningSo my previous post about Blackened Cajun Chicken with the Fettuccine Alfredo needs the Cajun Seasoning listed.  Don’t stop there, this mix can be used for all things Cajun!

I use this in my Gumbo.

I use this on shrimp to make Cajun Lettuce Wraps.  (Oh yeah!  A little of this on raw shrimp, drop them onto a hot skillet, and cook until the shrimp just barely looses that translucent, or clear, bit in the center.  Wrap in lettuce.  Eat.  Simple and delicious.)

Sometimes I just put a little on whatever needs a creole kick in the pants.

And it makes a lot, but a little goes a long way.  And it stores well for several months in a tightly sealed jar or freezer bag.  So what are you waiting for??  Go make some and enjoy it!
