Blackened Seasoning Mix

I am just getting over the flu. Who gets the flu in May? What a waste of beautiful weather!

I didn't make it grocery shopping this week so we are still eating from our freezer. Aside from all the ground beef, we also have a giant bag of frozen sole I bought at Costco, so I wanted a new way to cook it. I looked around and came up with...

Blackened Seasoning Mix

2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon- 2 teaspoons cayenne (1/4 for super mild-feed-to-your-kids, 2 for super spicy or anything in between)

I put mine in a dollar store spice jar with a shaker top. A double batch would probably fill the jar.

Blackened seasoning is good on chicken or fish, but I had fish to use up so that's what I made. I'll probably use the rest of the jar on some chicken later this week.

I coated the fish in melted butter, sprinkled on the seasoning on both sides and then pan fried it.

I served it with homemade fries and steamed broccoli. It was perfect!


  1. Thanks, almost better finally!

  2. Little late but glad to you're getting better. I've been sick too and also thought about it being summer and not the time to be sick. Last summer it was cloudy and not summery except for a couple of weeks. I was hoping this year would be blazing hot and no mistaking it was summer until my dh came home this week and said it was so hot he almost passed out while working!

    Love all your mixes, you are so creative.
