Cajun Spice Mix Recipe 1

One way to keep our taste buds happy and satisfied without feeling like they are deprived of anything is to add spices and herbs to dishes. I love keeping favorite spice blends on hand so that I can quickly add them meats, poultry, seafood, veggies, and even to dressing to kick my salad up a notch or two.

This Cajun Spice Mix definitely fits the bill for helping me toward my goal for a healthier me in 2012. It’s definitely a spice blend to keep stocked and ready to use. I doubled the recipe to have a little nearly ½ a cup to store in an airtight container. Now, I’m armed and ready!

  1. Your recipe for Cajun spice says it makes 10 teaspoons. Would a teaspoons equal a serving on drumsticks? (Maybe 2+ Ds’s pp? To marinade). …. Or if we’re making 10 DS’s would we use almost all for marinade? (Almost 4lbs)

    1. I would use about 3 tablespoons of the Cajun seasoning for 10 drumsticks, Toby. Hope you enjoy!
