OK, SO WHAT IS CAJUN SEASONING?
It is thought to be extremely spicy, but the heat level can vary. It usually contains paprika, garlic, cayenne, pepper, and oregano, with various other spices added depending on the area of influence.
Since everyone has their own preference, making your own blend is the perfect way to dial in your family’s taste.

HOW TO USE HOMEMADE CAJUN SEASONING
This Homemade Cajun Seasoning Recipe is one of hubby’s faves.
Some of the things you can make with it are:
Proteins: Fish, shrimp, chicken, pork, beef, and even tofu. Things like this sheet pan pork chop dinner are super easy with the bonus of quick cleanup too (low carb peeps can sub cauliflower for the potatoes)! Season a beef roast (1 tablespoon per pound) and cook it up in the Instant Pot for another quick and delicious weeknight dinner.
Crackers and Chips: Use your favorite low carb cracker or chip recipe and sprinkle them with this seasoning blend before baking to give them that little extra something.
Sauces: My favorite sauce to use this in is Alfredo, but it would be a great way to add some zip to a tomato sauce for a Cajun pasta or pizza.
Dips: Have a low carb hummus recipe you love? Add a bit of this seasoning to zing it up. You could even add it to this Cheesy Artichoke Crab Dip or guacamole. If you are allergic to avocado like me you can use this Avocado Free Guacamole recipe.
