MAKES: 6½ tablespoons (1 teaspoon per serving) · PREP TIME: 5 minutes
I love to keep a batch of this seasoning in the pantry at all times for quick and easy weeknight meals. It pairs perfectly with just about any protein—beef, chicken, seafood, you name it. In less than thirty minutes, you could be eating a piece of blackened salmon, a Blackened Chicken Salad (here), or even Blackened Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo (here).
•1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons smoked paprika
•1 tablespoon garlic powder
•1 tablespoon onion powder
•1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
•1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more for a spicier blend
•1 teaspoon dried basil
•1 teaspoon ground cumin
•1 teaspoon celery salt
•1 teaspoon sea salt
•½ teaspoon ground black pepper
•½ teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container or spice jar. Shake well before using.
tip: Mix 3 tablespoons of this seasoning with 1 cup of Roasted Garlic Mayo (here) to make a deliciously versatile sauce. I like to use it as a sandwich spread, as a dip for veggies, or to make deviled eggs.
