Cajun Spice Rub
Cuisine: Cajun
Makes: 4 servings
This recipe is adapted from one of my sister's culinary school recipes. I brought down the amount of salt... by a lot ? and reduced the amounts so that it doesn't serve a billion people ?. This rub makes a mean blackened chicken, pork or fish, and also works as a popcorn topping - you might just want to scale this recipe back up and leave it in your spice rack!
