From Emeril's New New Orleans Cooking. This is a fairly basic seasoniong mix. If you want hotter, decrease the paprika and increase the cayenne. I wouldn't mess with the black pepper amount, however, since that will change the texture and color of the mix.
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons paprika
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
- 1 tablespoon dried leaf thyme
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- Combine ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
Needed Creole Seasoning and didn't have it so food.com to the rescue. And who better of a Cajon dish the Emeril's and so lo glad I tried this one. Spot on and so easy, now I'll have plenty on hand to use on other dishes. I used it for Cajun Rice Eggs N Ham Breakfast Skillet and it was perfect. Thanks so much for posting
On 3/2 /13 I added about 2 teaspoons of the seasoning to 1 well beaten egg and 1/2 cup milk, then dipped boneless skinless chicken breasts. Then mixed about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of the seasoning mixed with about 1 1/2 cups of flour to coat the chicken breasts. Both my SO and I enjoyed the flavor very much. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
This is an excellent seasoning mix. I halved the recipe to fit in my spice jar. I thought it had a fabulously delicious flavor and wasn't too salty. Just what I was looking for!
