Make Your Own Cajun Spice Mix

DSC_05470002-

For a long time I have enjoyed to cook with Cajun style spice mix. I love this blend of spices and I use it on everything from potato wedges in the oven to casseroles and marinades. But one day I happened to look at the list of ingredients on my store bought spice mix and I was completely terrified. It contained such a big amount of additives that I was truly wondering from where it got its flavour. One thing I don’t like in my food is flavour enhancers. Why would you need to add that to a quality product? You wouldn’t… and that tells me this product is of poor quality.

I finally decided to start making my own Cajun spice mix and I still haven’t regretted it. I got rid of all the additives and instead I gained a lot of flavour.
