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.

Needed Creole Seasoning and didn't have it so 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 recipe#503238 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!
