Cajun Blackening Spices


Cajun Blackening Spice is specifically designed for pan-blackening, but it can also be a good all-purpose Cajun seasoning for gumbos and other southern dishes. It’s significantly spicier than Creole Seasoning, so those who like it hot might prefer this one.

Blended from paprika, black and white pepper, herbs, onions, garlic and sea salt, it has a wonderful peppery heat and deep-south spiciness. For pan-blackening, brush some oil onto your chicken or fish and coat with the blackening spice. Fry in a dry pan. If you like it extra garlicky, mix some freshly crushed garlic into your spice blend first. Sprinkle over meats and seafood before grilling or pan frying for an authentic Cajun taste.
