|A wonderful seasoning|
that is equally wonderful
when cooking using the proper
method, I have provided several recipes
on this site, just search...
4 teaspoons ground smoked paprika
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons fine-grained kosher salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
3/4-teaspoon ground cumin
1/4-teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
Store in a “labeled” airtight container in your pantry.
Use in all recipes that call for blackened seasonings; plus let your imagination run wild and make up your own! I use this by drying and then brushing a light coating of olive oil on halibut, salmon, chicken, or steak, then liberally covering it in the blackened seasoning. Place the prepared seafood or meat in a cast iron skillet over high heat, or outdoor grill, or broiler and cook.
TIP: When using dry spices place in palm first and rub with finger to activate oils before adding to recipes.
