This is my homemade Cajun seasoning blend and it suits me. Give it a try and if you don’t like it then adjust the seasonings for your own taste preferences. Remember what changes you made, write them down, and you’ll be able to reproduce it in the future easily.
Put everything into a food processor and pulse 3 to 5 times. If you prefer a coarser texture pulse less or if you prefer a finer texture pulse more.
Store in airtight container.
NOTE: You may want to reduce the size of the recipe the first time until you’ve had a chance to try it out first.
I actually make it (now) with a commercially available salt substitute product called No.Salt, however, it is recommended those with hyperkalemia, taking potassium sparing medications, or on a potassium restricted diet check with their physician before using it due to the fact that it is made entirely of potassium chloride.
If using sea salt, I believe probably closer to 1/4 cup will be needed. To me, regular table salt is stronger so less needed. Again, go with what tastes best to you and make any adjustments if needed.
