Cajun Seasonings, Regular Spicy, Extra Hot, Or Salt Free
Cajun Seasonings are useful, whether you’re a Cajun cook or not. This is the flavor you get when you taste a blackened dish; just be aware that the actual blackening comes from a very hot fire. This can be from a very hot gas grill, or in a professional kitchen - if you try to blacken in a home kitchen you are likely to set off the fire alarm. We really like this seasoning without being blackened as it's just a darned tasty, all-purpose seasoning.
For those who like a little zip to their food, use 1 teaspoon per pound for catfish, grilled chicken wings, steaks, chops, ribs, red snapper. It's great sprinkled on vegetables and eggs, and makes wonderful Cajun fries.
Regular Cajun has a pleasant level of heat, enough to add zest to your food but still mild enough for the whole family. It's a versatile flavor that can be used as a seasoned salt. Extra Hot Cajun, with jalapeno powder, will burn unwary tongues; this one's for serious Cajun and hot food lovers. For those worried about sodium, the Salt-Free has all the flavor you love without any salt.
