I needed cajun seasoning for a recipe and whipped this up in no time at all! I loved it as is but it's very spicy (it IS CAJUN sesoning after all). The nice thing about making your own is you can control and spice/salt in the seasoning! Read More

From a native of New Orleans, this would be perfect if it had garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt and white pepper. Also, replace the oregano with sage. Just a suggestion. Read More

I have no idea if this tastes like cajun seasoning but it was spicy and used all spices I had on hand so it's a winner in my book. I so do not need to buy another spice. Have too many already! Thanks! Read More

Thank goodness for this site and this recipe! Not only didn't I have to drive to the store (gas) in the midst of cooking (time) but this is a true cajun winner of a spice!! Read More

I can't believe practically no one else is complaining about the salt overkill! There is WAY too much salt in this recipe. It was almost inedible. I would use maybe a teaspoon or two next time. Watch out! Read More

This was great! I used it on top of "Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce" recipe on this site. Very easy to make. Thanks for sharing! Read More
