Homemade Cajun Seasoning Recipe Mix
Cajun Seasoning Recipe Overview
You can find this spice mix with origins in Louisiana everywhere these days. But in a pinch, you probably have the basic components in your pantry. Cajun seasoning hails from Acadian immigrants, people with French roots via the Eastern Maritime Canadian provinces, who integrated their style of cooking with other ethnic groups in Louisianna after fleeing there in the mid-18th century during the French and Indian War, which saw their people at odds with the British. Cajun seasoning and Cajun cooking boasts African American, Caribbean and Creole influence, which create a punch of flavors in iconic dishes such as gumbo and jambalaya.
