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.
