Emeril’s Essence

Emeril's pretty spot on with this Cajun Seasoning - but the best thing about mixing up your own? You can tinker if you want!!

Awhile back, I posted my Cajun Spice blend, a vibrant blend of peppers herbs and spices. Here’s another Cajun type blend, put together by Emeril LaGasse.

You seriously couldn’t go wrong with either of the Cajun blends! As you can see the ingredients are fairly similar and it’s all just a matter of taste (and tinkering, if you’re so inclined!)

    • I am not completely convinced that I’m in love with the smoky paprika – I remember how I searched it out when I first heard about it and maybe different brands are different but I find it is sometimes so strong it can overpower everything else. I’ve made a few mistakes with it! What do you think about it?
