What is creole seasoning?
Creole seasoning is a mix of spices and herbs commonly used in Creole dishes.
In this mix you’ll find lots of dried herbs, like basil and thyme, as well as some spices to add a subtle heat, like paprika and cayenne pepper. Overall, it adds a rich savory, herby flavor.
What’s the difference between creole and cajun seasoning?
These two seasoning mixes are very similar and are often used in the same types of recipes. The main difference is that cajun seasoning tends to be a bit spicier.
Both mixes use a lot of the same herbs and spices, but Cajun is more focused on the spice (and usually less ingredients), while Creole is more focused on the herby flavor (with a longer list of herbs and spices).
When should I use this spice mix?
Creole seasoning is a versatile spice mix. It works on all kinds of meat and seafood dishes. Use it when cooking shrimp, fish, or chicken. It also tastes great in gumbos, stews, and soups!
- Use a whisk to combine ingredients for the perfect mix.
