I'm getting several requests for the Cajun spice mixture. The recipe
follows. It should make about 1/2 cup of the stuff. Increase the
proportions to make more.
4 T paprika
3 T salt
1 1/2 T cayenne (red) pepper
1 T black pepper
1 T white pepper
1 1/2 T onion powder
1 1/2 T garlic powder (not garlic salt)
2 t dried thyme
2 t dried oregano (preferably Greek rather than Italian)
You can make this milder by using paprika in place of some of the cayenne
pepper. Similarly, you can make this hotter by replacing some of the
paprika with cayenne pepper or even Hungarian hot paprika.
