This is from chef Rick Rodgers. He adds basil and thyme a little different than some Cajun seasonings. Posted for ZWT 5.
- 2 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (cayenne)
- Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Transfer to a small jar and seal tightly. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months.
Fantastic! I love "make your own seasoning" because I can control the salt level. I mixed this up and used it to make jambalaya. It is perfect. Just added Tabasco when it was done for the finishing touch. Thank you for sharing- no more supermarket mixes!
My usual Cajun seasoning (store bought) was getting a little old and I had to discard it. Now this seasoning is easy to make with ingredients always in my cupboard and the mix is always fresh. No more store bought for me!
Used this mix on breakfast eggs and also on roasted potatoes, very good! Easy to make and with the right kick.
Thanks for posting.

Never had Cajun Seasoning before, and I like it! I used it on some scrambled eggs and enjoyed them very much. The kick from the cayenne was just right. Made for Ramadan Tag. Thanks! :)
