Homemade Cajun seasoning is easy to make with common spices you probably already have on your spice rack. Don’t waste time hunting for pre-made Cajun seasoning at the grocery store again!
Homemade Cajun Seasoning
I’m a huge fan of spicy food, so Cajun seasoning is one of my go-to spice blends. Unfortunately, it can be pretty hard to find at grocery stores here in the Northeast. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent scouring the shelves or driving from store to store hunting it down. And when I do manage to get my hands on store-bought Cajun seasoning, it isn’t always the best quality.
So I gave up and made my own!
This homemade Cajun seasoning recipe is easy to make and uses basic spices that you probably already keep on your spice rack anyway. And since you know exactly what’s in it, you can make sure it’s gluten-free or paleo if that’s important to you. You can mix up a little bit to use in one recipe, or make a whole jar full that’s ready to go whenever your next Cajun craving hits. I highly recommend using it in this Cajun turkey casserole – it’s so good!
