A 5 spice Cajun Seasoning that’s ready in under 2 minutes! This spicy seasoning has no extra salt added! Plus, the quantity is completely adjustable so make as little or as much as you’d like!
I never thought about making a spice recipe for the blog. In fact, I had no idea where to even categorize this 5 spice cajun seasoning. It couldn’t be placed under the dinner recipe section. Because, honestly, whose looking to eat a jar of seasoning for dinner?
I had to confide in my husband to reassure me where to place this Cajun Seasoning on the blog. We both agreed it was best filed under the Sauces, Dressings and Toppings category. I know, it still doesn’t fit ‘per say’. But hey, at least you won’t be tempted to sit down to a jar of spicy cajun seasoning for dinner.
5 Spice Cajun Seasoning
Well now that I got that off my mind, let me tell you what sets this cajun seasoning apart from most……
For one, it’s salt free! Salt is not necessary in this spicy seasoning because it can easily be added to the dish being made. And for two & three, it’s super quick to make and only 5 ingredients so you probably have everything in your spice rack!
Also, by making your own spice mixes you eliminate the preservatives store bought seasonings contain.
And those preservatives are no good for our health……
Plus, the quantity is easily adjusted to make as little or as much as you need. Use equal amounts of onion, garlic, pepper and paprika and half the amount of cayenne. But if you prefer spicier, add the full amount of cayenne. 🔥 (I’ve never been brave enough to add an equal amount of cayenne!)
Ok, Ok…… The 5 Spice Cajun Seasoning wasn’t randomly created…… There is a purpose to this recipe.
You’ll find out what this spicy seasoning will be used for in my next post!
