Blackened Seasoning

Pin It
Recently, I was looking for a great rub/seasoning for the halibut I was making for dinner and instead of buying something that was pre-mixed, I decided to see what I could come up with using the ingredients I already had on hand.

So, I perused the web and decided that I’d make a blackened seasoning and I’m here to tell you that it was better than any premade mix you could buy in the store. AND, the options could be endless! I have a friend who has been making her own taco seasoning for years and she swears by it.
I love that I have control over the ingredients that are going into the seasoning; there are no fillers. In addition, the cost is much less than purchasing a blend of spices and I already have so many on hand. I like to buy a lot of my spices in bulk so I have them in abundance.

And the taste?? Amazing! Try making your own seasoning blends today!

1T paprika
2tsp ground pepper
1tsp cayenne pepper – if you prefer a less spicy version, cut this back to ½ tsp
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp onion powder
1tsp sea salt
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp dried oregano

Mix all of the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

Use as a rub for chicken, pork, or fish like Hubs and I did.

Makes about 3T of seasoning mix.
