Blackened (Blackening Seasoning)

(2 customer reviews)


When one of our favorite chefs asked us to help add blackened catfish to their menu, we jumped at the chance. We came up with this flavorful Cajun style blend that not only excels at blackening, but works great as a basic Cajun seasoning for soups, casseroles or meat. Bonus: It’s free of salt!

Organic Ingredients: paprika, garlic, black pepper, thyme, celery seed, oregano, cayenne pepper



Blackening is a very simple technique that is a crowd pleaser. This works well with fish, thin chicken cutlets, thin cut pork chops, firm pressed tofu. Lets talk about making perfect blackened fish:

  • Coat the fish with Blackened seasoning mix on both sides.
  • Get a cast iron pan screaming hot and add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.
  • Add the fish and cook for about 2 minutes, depending on the size of the filet. You want the edges on the pan side to begin to pull up, and look cooked.
  • With a large spatula flip and cook on the other side for about a minute to a minute and a half.
  • Remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • We like to serve this with our Buffy’s Slayer Helper Remoulade.

    Bought this for a one-time recipe for catfish but it’s on regular rotation now – my vegan niece came over and we even used it on carrots and high-heat broccoli

  2. Jackie George-Linns (store manager)

    Finally found a cajun spice done well. That can be hard to find. I use in my chicken and rice soup to give it a more complex flavor profile and it’s no brainer for my jambalaya
