Homemade Cajun Spice Mix Recipe

This is my delicious homemade cajun spice mix, perfect for roasted veggies, potatoes, fish and meat. Just sprinkle a couple of teaspoons before cooking and you have a flavour packed meal right there.

This recipe mix is really easy to make and can be stored in an air tight container or jar for months. Personally, I love this spice mix recipe on salmon or roasted potatoes, just look at those roasted tatties (potatoes) below. I usually sprinkle a teaspoon of the mix per person, for example, if I'm cooking two salmon fillets I'll use two teaspoons.
