Creole seasoning is a mixture of flavors that goes well
with most Louisiana and Cajun Recipe dishes. It's not perfect for EVERY dish, so, don't hesitate to
add a little more of one or more of the same ingredient, or others, to
achieve the flavor you're looking for.
The following recipe contains SALT. If you are on a
"NO SALT DIET", and, you are not on a potassium
restricted diet, you can eliminate the real salt and add a salt substitute. If you're not sure ask
your Doctor. I AM one of those people and the salt substitute works fine
for me. You can also leave the salt completely out and let everyone salt
their food with whatever they like (real or substitute).
The ingredients below are all store bought dried, not fresh.
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Combine all ingredients
thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
I just saved one of my old seasoning containers and used that!
Yield: about 2/3 cup
