I cut the salt to only 1/8 cup. Absolutly love this. I put it on everything...grilled veg, rice, chicken, and fish. Can't say enough about it. Its a must.
This is the best. Love it, love it, love it. Have used it on several different meats and on my favorite Halibut. It is great on fish. Great job Rita!
I can't stop sneezing LOL!!! Anyhoo, this is good stuff! Used it to make some Cajun Peanuts for gift giving this holiday season and I have some left over to use in general cooking. I too cut the salt in half, only because I was using it on salted nuts and sesame sticks. Sprinkled some on my microwave popcorn this evening and it was GREAT!!! Thanks Rita (and congrats on being the Veggie VIP this month)!
I love how much this recipe makes and took the advice of cutting the salt in half. It was delicious on my salmon recipe. Can't wait to use it on other things!
I haven't used it yet, but I took a picture. When I get to it, I will totally post a review. I'm sure it'll be saucy...er, spicy... UPDATE: I made Tilapia and Bayou Rice with this rub mix, and it's AWESOME! This is the perfect mix (I did cut the salt to 1/4 cup, however). I never have and never will buy cajun spice/seasoning from any store. Pshaw! Store cajun spice... I won't even acknowledge its existence. :)
Rita, I have a dozen Cajun Spice recipes, but I think this will be my go-to one from now on. I did cut back a little on the salt. I used this to make Cajun Style Oven Fries and they turned out so good! Made for ZWT5, Hell's Kitchen Angels.
to salty went to 1/8 of cup
Not bad, but still missing something. I only added half the salt and it was still a little salty. Definitely would be a good idea to make this in a smaller amount, as adjustments are necessary.
I made this up before Christmas, put it in cellophane bags and gave it to work colleagues as a gift. Then I made up jars of it for family for Christmas as well. Universally everyone asked me for the recipe because they liked it so much. I finally got around to making some up for us about three weeks ago. (because everyone was raving about it at work) It's been tried on BBQ'd steak and on oven baked chicken wings thuis far at our house. I love it! It is spicy but not hot and adds a wonderful flavour. You can sprinkle it on meats immediately prior to cooking or leave it to marinade for hours before cooking. Im also thinking you could sprinkle chops and other meats with this and then dump then in the freezer until youre ready to cook them. I wish they allowed more than 5 stars because this recipe is a definite keeper and we will make it up again and again.
