5 oz
5 oz
basil leaves
5 oz
turkish oregano
10 oz
spanish paprika
6 1/2 oz
onion powder
6 1/2 oz
garlic powder
1 1/2 oz
cayenne pepper
1 1/2 oz
white pepper
2 1/2 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

Put mixture in food processor and mix on high speed for a minute or two. That heats it up so it won't clump together or separate later on. Store in air-tight container.
Serving ideas: For chicken (fillets pounded out) or fish: Dredge in melted butter with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Roll or sprinkle generously over meat the cajun spice. Put about 3 tablespoons butter in skillet (non-stick) and preheat. Drop in fillets, cook chicken throughly on both sides, medium heat. Fish: Cook in hot skillet a few minutes on each side enough to carmelize.
