Make double or quadruple batches of this stuff. It lasts very nicely for future use, and makes a great food gift.

Five stars and two thumbs up; I love this recipe for grilling white fish and chicken. Thank you so much for sharing. Even kid-friendly too, the grandkids love it on chicken, since I switched the paprika amount for the cayenne amount :-)
This is the perfect Blackening Spice. It has flavor as well as heat. I won't buy the bottled spice any more. Thanks for posting.
Wonderful! I decreased the cayenne to 1/2t and coated my chicken and made penne pasta tossed with 2 large cloves of garlic, a little cream, and parmesan cheese. Then I added asparagus or what ever vegetables you have on hand like bell pepper or broccoli, then added chicken. Very good stuff. Turned out better than Chili's Blackened Chicken.
