  • 3 tsp 3 Sweet paprika

  • 3 tsp 3 Smoked paprika

  • 2 tsp 2 Cayenne pepper

  • 4 tsp 4 Garlic powder

  • 2 tsp 2 Onion Powder

  • 2 tsp 2 Ground black pepper

  • 2 tsp 2 White pepper powder

  • 2 tsp 2 Dried Oregano

  • 2 tsp 2 Dried Thyme

  • 2 tsp 2 Dried basil

  • 3 tsp 3 Dried rosemary (optional)

  • 1 1/2 tsp 1 1/2 Kosher salt or fine sea salt



  • Add all the ingredients to the mixing bowl and whisk everything together until thoroughly combined.
  • You can use your prepared Cajun seasoning immediately with your dishes or store it away in a well-fitting glass container/ spice jar to use whenever you need it.


  • If you don’t like salt in your blend, you can skip it. Or, if you want more salt, feel free to add another teaspoon or so.
  • Although we have used both sweet and smoked paprika here, you can just go with one variety, depending on what you have in hand.
  • If you wish to make your blend hotter, increase the amount of cayenne pepper. We have used paprika and cayenne pepper in a 2:1 ratio here. So, for more hotness, you can go in a 1:1 ratio. That is, use 02 tablespoons of paprika and 02 tablespoons of cayenne pepper.
  • For an extra kick of flavor, you can follow up with some ground cumin, chili powder, jalapeno powder, etc.
  • When stored properly in an air-tight glass spice container/jar, this Cajun seasoning could last well up to one year.
