After receiving a lot of positive feedback from our visitors we now call this recipe, our Famous Blackened Seasoning Blend. A word of caution before you cook with blackened seasoning.  Be ready for plenty of smoke. 

If you cook inside on very high heat the seasoning will throw off plenty of smoke. Because of the smoke, I sometimes cook outside over a burner using propane gas. But don't let a little smoke discourage you from cooking a great tasting meal.

That said, you can still use the seasoning mix to cook blackened chicken, fish, and steak inside on your stove-top.  One other thing, if you've ever eaten Cajun pasta in a restaurant, this season will have a very familiar taste.
