Add this Homemade Blackened Seasoning to your cabinet of spice blends! Simply sprinkle over chicken, fish or veggies. Roast, grill or cook in a hot cast iron skillet (with butter) to form a delicious exterior spice crust.
Today I’ve got a new spice blend for you to make at home! Are you excited? I’m excited. Because, as I’ve said before, why buy pre-made spice blends when you can easily make them yourself. Saving you money! Because you most likely have most (if not all) these spices in your kitchen already.
What is Blackened Seasoning?
It’s a mixture of garlic powder, paprika, smoked paprika, dried thyme, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cayenne. Think of it as a milder cajun seasoning. And it’s delicious sprinkled on fish, chicken or vegetables! Really anything. You can grill, roast or mix it into dips, however I believe the more traditional method is searing the food in a hot skillet with butter. YUM.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a recipe calling for this homemade blackened seasoning, so stay tuned!
Here are the spices you will need; 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons both sweet (regular) paprika and smoked paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons both dried thyme and oregano, 1 teaspoon each garlic powder, kosher salt and black pepper, and finally 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
First, measure and add all the dried herbs and spices into a clean jar.
Next, use a spoon or small whisk to combine thoroughly.
And that’s it! Secure the lid tightly and store in a dry, dark place for up to 6 months or longer.
