Tips for the blackened seasoning recipe

The term “blackened” actually describes the cooking process. It is when chicken or fish is soaked in butter or oil and then dipped in the seasoning mix. Then it’s seared in a skillet over high heat. The combination of the blackened seasoning and the cooking process makes the chicken or fish look black. You’re looking for a dark crust on each side of the meat, fish, or shrimp.

Is Blackened Seasoning similar to Cajun or Creole Seasoning?

Yes. All are popular seasoning mixes; however, Cajun seasoning tends to be spicier due to the use of Cayenne pepper. Blackened seasoning does have some heat but the chili powder is generally milder.

How and how long to store the blackened seasoning?

The blackened seasoning will last a long time in an airtight container. However, it might start to lose its potency after 3 months. You are better off making small batches that you’ll use in the weeks to come.
