What is Blackening Seasoning?

Blackening seasoning is a type of spice blend used to "blacken" meats. Blackening is a technique where meat is coated in butter & blackening seasoning, then cooked on high heat.

What's the difference between Cajun & Blackening Seasoning?


Both spice mixes are similar, but Cajun seasoning tends to be spicier, while blackening seasoning is specifically for blackening meat.


For this recipe you will need: paprika, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, ground thyme, cayenne pepper, black pepper, dried basil, & sugar.

Combine all seasonings together and mix well. Store in an air tight container. Keep on hand for that added Cajun kick!  Use 1 tablespoon of spice blend per pound of meat.
