Cajun Seasoning.......

During this season of Lent, many of us are eating more fish. So why not step up the flavor beyond just fried or baked fish? Get out that Cajun Seasoning and fix yourself some blackened fish. Why is it blackened you asked? When you season your fish and put it in the hot oil in the skillet, it will start to smoke a little. That's the spices blackening, it is not burning your fish. Take care with the fish though, you don't want to burn it or overcook it. Nothing worse than overcooked fish!!
Cajun Seasoning
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an air-tight jar or container. 
Start with a little cayenne pepper and adjust to your own taste.
Till next time.....
