Over the years I have tried a number of Cajun/blackening seasonings and some time ago settled on one that Hubs and I both love and have used exclusively since - until now. We also agree that THIS seasoning mix is even better. Always mindful of Hubs' sensitive innards I reduced the cayenne by half, leaving all else the same. We used it to blacken grouper in a cast iron pan on our outdoor grill - just out of this world. All the seasonings blend cooperatively with each other to create a whole new taste - in other words, no one spice stands out. And for us, cutting the cayenne by half was just right. Great recipe.
I thought it was just OK. I put it on a piece
of Talapia and some shrimp. In my opinion,
the taste of the oregano is too strong for my
taste. The wife didn't like it either. The only changes I made were I added a tsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp of celery seeds. I saw them in the ingredients list of Chef Pauls ($5.00) small bottle of 'Redfish Magic'. So, why not! The heat level was good.
Wonderful! And its salt-free~ Hubby rubbed this on our grilled chicken breasts about an hour before grilling. I'd better go to Costco to get the restaurant-size containers of the spices because I will be making this by the bucket! Thank you!!
this is great on everything. Rub it on ribs, sprinkle on chicken in the crockpot, stew, elk meat, etc. So much potential. Put in jars and shakers and gave it as a gift to the guys at Christmas!
Awesome. I used it on salmon last night and now I'm having it on scallops. Just sqeeze a little lime on to cut thruogh the heat and YUM!
We were looking for a good blackened seasoning recipe and this was good. Not as spicy as we were looking for, but we made some kicked up dipping sauce to go with the meat we were putting this rub on. Next time, we will be adding a little more spice, but not salty as we have found wih other receipes.
Very good seasoning. I made this to use on top of some cod, and it was very good. I'm not a big fish eater, but this definitely helped! This one is going in the recipe box. Thanks!
Excellent! Used it for seasoning "Pan-Seared Tilapia" from this site. It was perfect for that dish. I will definitely make this again!
