Cocky Cajun Seasoning

This recipe was edited/updated on 28 January 2014.

Some of you may have noticed that I love my Cajun seasoning. I am on my third bottle of this pre-mixed stuff and I use it on practically everything… or at least I did. For whatever reason, checking out the label never crossed my mind before today and can you guess what I found? Sugar! Noooooooooooo!!!!!! Such heartbreak.

Luckily, my cabinets are overflowing with other dried herbs and spices, and most of them are organic. Time to make my own! This will make enough to keep your pantry stocked for quite a while – I make it every few months – but feel free to adjust the proportions depending on your needs.


Ingredients (Seasoning):
4 tsp Kosher salt
4 tsp granulated garlic
4 tsp onion powder
4 tsp hot paprika
4 tsp oregano
3 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp parsley
2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp celery salt

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or Tupperware container. Mix well, making sure to break up any clumps – I usually use a fork.

Store in a cool, dry place in an airtight container as you would with any other spice/herb.
