Blackened equals flavor, and we love using this seasoning on so many things, including my Blackened Salmon Burgers and my Skillet Blackened Tilapia. It’s also delicious on chicken and pork, so stay tuned for more recipes coming soon.

The BEST Seasoning Blend

Seasoning equals FLAVOR, which is why I thought it was time for me to share this unbelievably tasty blackened seasoning. Just like my homemade taco seasoning, THIS blackened mixture is stored in my pantry at all times. I love mixing up a large batch and storing it in a mason jar for all the occasions I need it.

So instead of taking eight different seasonings out of your kitchen pantry for a dish, you can just remove one jar and add as little or as much as you like. We’re big on seasonings here so I’m always generous when applying it, especially if I’m using it on meats that are going on the grill. But you do you!

Ingredients needed:

  • Paprika
  • Brown Sugar
  • Garlic Powder
  • Kosher Salt
  • Onion Powder
  • Ground Cumin
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Cayenne Pepper

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How long does this seasoning last in my pantry? This seasoning will last in your pantry just as long as any other spice you keep there. I tend to go through my spices once a year.
