Cajun Spice Mix

Cajun Spice mix is a very versatile Spice Blend which is predominantly used for marinating meats, vegetables and used as a seasoning mix as well. Cayenne Pepper provides heat in this spice blend and the various herbs provide the freshness and aroma. I love to use it in grilled meats, vegetables, potatoes and also seasoning dry fruits like cashews and almonds. Detailed recipe for Cajun Seasoning.
