Blackening Seasoning

Blackening Seasoning

img_0269

I’m always looking to spice up my meals and add some jazz to my chicken or fish.  I like experimenting with different seasonings as they add flavour without a ton of calories.  Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring you just need to get creative with your recipes and with seasoning your meat.  This versatile blackening rub is great on chicken, fish, steak, or burgers.  We sprinkle it on everything even our homemade potato wedges.  I like that it is low sodium and doesn’t have any preservatives.  It takes minutes to make and can be stored in an airtight container for future use!!

Blackening Seasoning Recipe

1 1/2 tbsp Paprika

1 tbsp Garlic Powder

1 tbsp Onion Powder

1 tbsp Dried Thyme

1 tsp Dried Basil

1 tsp Ground Black Pepper

1 tsp Cayenne Pepper (1/2 tsp if you don’t like spice or 1 1/2 tsp if you love it extra spicy!)

1 tsp Sea Salt

Mix all the spices together and store in an airtight container.  You can also mix equal parts of the seasoning and oil to make a nice rub for roasts or whole chickens.

Enjoy!
