Cajun Spice

Cajun cuisine using cajun spice is a cooking style named for the French-speaking Acadian people who relocated in Louisiana and deep Southern states from Canada in the 18th century. These forefathers adapted their cooking to the ingredients that were available in their new region. Instead of lobster, salmon and cod found in North Atlantic, they began using crab, crawfish, oyster, shrimp, and even alligator. Potatoes were replaced with rice, which grew quickly in the southern climate, and new spices like pepper and cayenne were introduced thanks to the Spanish, Indians and African Americans that also lived in the area. These influences gave cajun spice the distinct flavor it is today.

Most dishes start with what is known as the holy trinity, a combination of bell peppers, onion and celery to create a signature foundation. But it is the bold and beautiful smoky spice mixture that gives cajun cuisine its one of a kind flavor and distinctive fragrance. This spice combination also offers antibacterial and antiviral properties and a good source of Vitamin B vitamins.

Our wholesale cajun spice is a delicious combination of flavors including red pepper, garlic, onion, and paprika that gives this delicious spice mixture its famous red color. Cajun spice has a tangy, earthy flavor with a touch of heat and sweetness making it the perfect spice blend for blackening meats like pork, chicken, beef and seafood. It’s also a key component in any great gumbo, and the seafood and chicken stew referred to as jambalaya. This spice blend can also be sprinkled on nut mixes and sesame sticks for a nutritious snack, or added to any dish for an added touch of heated, smoky flavor.
