  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cayenne powder (chili powder may be substituted)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 3 teaspoons sea salt or 1 and 1/2 teaspoons refined salt


  • Stir everything together. And that's it.
  • If, however, you want a Cajun spice mix powder, dump all the ingredients into a food processor and process until the desired texture is achieved.
  • Keep the Cajun spice mix in a tightly covered jar. Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. It should keep for a month or so.
