    How to make blackened seasoning


  • Pro tip:  Prepare blackened seasoning in advance to make meal prep easier during the week!
  • This recipe is mild in spice as written as my family doesn't tolerate a lot of heat.  If you like things spicy simply add more cayenne pepper.
  • Store seasoning in an air tight container in a cool, dark cabinet for up to 3 months.
