This is from top secret recipes. I use this blend for my southwest seasoning and it is excellent on sauteed scallops in butter. It is so versatile that I look for recipes to use this seasoning.

Used on fish. Oh yeah, I distinctly remember St. Peter saying, "Everything that lives and moves will be food for you"...or was that Genesis? No matter, St. Peter would have loved it, too.

I really liked this blackening spice. I used it to make Blackened Salmon with Pineapple Rice. It was so flavorful, yet not too hot for my taste. Even my picky eater who complains that everything is too spicy ate it. My husband who likes things HOT HOT HOT also enjoyed it. I cut the recipe in half to fit in my shaker and will enjoy using it in the future. Thanks for sharing!

This is definitely a keeper with me, and will make a wonderful addition to some Christmas gifts for those friends and family that I never know what to give them for Christmas. Thanks for posting. And a big Thank you to Auntie Jan for suggesting this about the Christmas Gifts.
