Cajun Spice Blend Recipe

A powerful spice blend which doesn't overdo the salt.

It's easy to find a Cajun spice blend at the grocery store. But often those mixes are so salty they overpower the meats and vegetables you'd like to season. This blend amps up the flavor, and pumps the breaks on salt. The resulting spice blend is well balanced, and compliments whatever you choose to put it on.
