Cajun Spice Blend is an audacious, brash and daring mix of bold flavours, balanced with sweet, herbal notes. Expect slow-burning heat from cayenne and red chillies, accompanied with punchy flavours of cardamom, cumin, garlic and fennel.

The spice mix is known as the epitome of Louisianan cuisine! Use this spice mix to create ‘soul food’ classics like gumbos and jambalayas and use alongside file powder. South American cuisine famously utilises crayfish, sweet potatoes and fresh fish. This Cajun Spice Blend thrives when used as a spice rub for these ingredients and more!

It’s important to distinguish between Creole and Cajun cuisines. Creole cuisine is more urban, associated with New Orleans and influenced by Spanish, French, African, and Caribbean cuisines. Meanwhile, Cajun cuisine is rural, hailing from the countryside of Louisiana and influenced by French and regional Southern cooking.

Cajun spice blend is part of a cuisine that’s deeply rooted in the culture of the Acadian people, who were French-speaking settlers deported from Canada’s Maritime provinces (Acadia) by the British in the 18th century. They eventually settled in the bayous and swamps of Louisiana, where Cajun cuisine developed.

This spice mix is a kitchen staple that will transform your sticky chicken wings and fries. Try rubbing into meat or vegetable patties when making burgers. We recommend adding to eggs or mixing with cream cheese and butter to make a pasta sauce. You can even scatter over popcorn!

We offer this in an organic and a blackening version. Alternatively, try our Cajun Jambalaya Gourmet Cooking Sauce for an authentic, flavourful meal. Buy Cajun in our spice tin.

    Cajun spice is a must have. our favourite is to rub it and some oil into the flesh of sea bass fillets, leave for 30 mins and then grill on a sheet of foil skin side up till fish cooked and skin blackened. goes brilliantly with garlic/herby mash and something green

    SP has nailed this one. The Cajun Spice is the one that I cannot be without. Essential in my Jambalaya. I start to feel exposed when down to my last couple of teaspoons. Just ordered three more packets. Loads of flavour and plenty of heat. Just fab

    Great product, will never use a supermarket again.

    This is the best Cajun blend money can buy! It’s spicy and aromatic and just wakes up anything you use it with. For something a bit different, use it on potato wedges. Slice up your potatoes (This works with either white potatoes or sweet potatoes), place them on a baking tray or in a dish with sides and pop on some oil. Coat the wedges, then sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning. Pop them in the oven to cook. Serve them with a dip at BBQ’s and watch them disappear!

    Goes great as a sauce with some butter, on top of fish and veggies! It’s full of flavour so I only use small quantities.

    These spices are absolutely the best and most vibrant to use in your cooking. Fantastic in rice with chopped up peppers!

    Excellent. Did the Cajun Spiced Asparagus recipe and it was enjoyed by everyone. You don’t need to use much but adds a nice kick.

    I start to panic when I get down to my last half bag of this. It’s a must. A go-to. A dish saver. The keystone to my Jambalaya. It is as hot as they say, so perhaps don’t sprinkle on your Cornflakes 😉

    Absolute fav. My number 1 with chicken and prawns.

    Loving the Cajun Spice mix – puts a smile on my face every time… yum yum…

  12. M.B.

    Lovely and smoky, smells much milder than it tastes so don’t be fooled. Good with pork.
