A couple weeks ago I shared with you my Homemade BBQ Spice Rub and I have another easy spice rub that you can make at home:
Homemade Cajun Spice Rub
This rub is great to have on poultry, fish, and seafood; especially shrimp.
I love this rub because it creates a dark crust when seared on chicken or fish. It is the type of rub that you would use to make something “blackened.” (not burnt 😉 )
My husband loves fish. He will eat almost any and all kinds of fish.
I most definitely do NOT like fish.
I can’t get over the smell, the texture or the flavor. I have tried it multiple different ways (fried, grilled, baked and pan seared) and have not found a recipe that I’ve liked. I would love it if you would send a recommendation my way! I haven’t given up hope!
This rub is super simple and adds a ton of flavor to any meal!
All you need is: fresh cracked black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, salt, thyme, oregano, mustard powder, and cayenne pepper.
Mix spices and rub or toss on any meat or seafood!
I hope to bring you a couple more go to spice rubs and mixes in the future. These are so easy to make and will save you from buying the pre-made rubs.
Again, I’d love to get any recommendations for fish recipes!
What are you favorite cajun dishes? Mine is definitely gumbo!
Hope you have a great weekend!
