Blackened Spice Blend

This is one of those Spice Mixes that you can use for almost anything. It’s a quick marinade if you make a paste with some olive oil, or just sprinkle it on any protein or vegetable before grilling to ramp it up to another level. You can adjust the seasoning to Spice it YOUR Way, and if you don’t like heat, you can leave out the cayenne or just add a pinch.



  1. Stir together all ingredients and add to an airtight jar or storage container. Store in a cool, dark place until ready to use.
