Cajun Spice Recipe

You wouldn’t think spice mixes make great camping recipes but they do! I know, I know … a spice mix is not a meal in itself but it definitely takes a meal over-the-top!

I also know it is easy and convenient to buy a prepared mix but this one is sooooooooooo good that you won’t mind the 30 seconds of extra time it takes to make this blend yourself.

Here’s the proof: I used my Cajun spice recipe to make blackened salmon on a camping trip and my brother-in-law said it was the best meal he ever ate in his life!!!

It’s great for flavoring meats and sauces so I usually keep a double batch in my pantry for those times a little Cajun kick sounds delish (which is quite often in our house.)

When I make spice blends, I transport them to the campsite in Food Storage Containers With Tight-Fitting Lids.

I like my set that has various sizes of containers that nest for compact storage.
