Use this Cajun seasoning for barbecue ribs, chicken, blackened fish, Cajun soups or sauces, blackened steaks, and blackened pastas. This makes a lot, so if you have a small family or do not intend to use it often, feel free to cut the recipe in half.

this amount of salt ruined the other spices, Member jym007us

I should have review this in great detail because the salt ruined my blend and it caused intense indigestion. Don't waste your time with this one.
