Sometimes I buy my seasoning mixes, but I prefer to know the amount of the various spices. This homemade blackened seasoning mix is great with fish, chicken or any other place you want.
Blacken Fish has always been a great go to dinner but mixing all those spices every time just is too much. And I don’t want the “commercial” blend that plays to the lowest common taste and adds fillers.
So I need some seasoning for the next post, grilled blackened chicken sandwiches. I love my blackened tilapia based on an Aaron MaCorgo Jr (Food Networks “Big Daddy”) recipe so that is the basis for this everyday blackened seasoning I will be keeping on hand.
A very nice spice mix.
By doing this yourself you get to make the adjustments you want. Use smoked paprika, more garlic, more pepper, increase the heat with more cayenne. Don’t like oregano or thyme, take them out. I’m putting mine in a shaker from Penzeys Spices. Be sure to seal tight.
Mix two tablespoons paprika, two teaspoon onion powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt, and one teaspoon each of garlic powder, thyme, oregano, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix well and seal in a tight container.
