Make Your Own Cajun Seasoning


Buying ready made seasonings like Cajun or Fajita in store usually costs about £3 per bottle.  But what you might not realise is that you’ve probably got all of the ingredients in your cupboard already.  It’s so much cheaper to make it yourself and since you can amend it to how you like it, it’s far tastier as well!

Mix it in with the meat when you’re seasoning you burgers to make some lovely Cajun burgers, sprinkle on some chicken as part of a nice salad, or use it to season a nice bit of fish.  Whatever you do with it, it’ll taste like awesome Cajun food!
