I use this as the base for every Cajun recipe I've done so far (use 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp. of salt vs. 2). Whenever anything calls for Cajun seasoning this is the one to use. Don't bother going to ...

Easy to make. No need to stock another seasoning!

Use less salt.

Yum! Hubbie can't have salt so I used 1 t for all ingredients. It's delish!

Easy to make and I always have the seasonings on hand besides the white pepper. I used Oregano instead.

The other reviews for this were quite helpful. I cut the salt down to 1/4 tsp. for a HALF batch. It was just enough spice for my Cajun Meatballs. This was just what I needed, thank you.
