Cajun Spice Blend, USA - Aromatic and spicy delicious seasoning for the popular southern Louisiana Cajun kitchen. Hot and aromatic flavors - suitable for BBQs.
The American kitchen can be divided into three unique cooking styles. Cajun cuisine, Mexican cuisine and Creole cuisine.
The Cajun kitchen came in the period around 1764-85 with the French fugitives to Canada. They were workers and preferred to eat stew dishes called Gumbos. Later, they moved to the Southern States - Louisiana region, and brought their taste for spicy dishes with them. Here in Louisiana it developed the Cajun cuisine over time and changed with the surrounding influences. Many Cajun dishes are made with bacon.
The Cajun were very good, productive farmers and bred different vegetables and a large variety of herbs. They cultivated fruit trees such as apricots, figs, pears, apples as well as peaches and plums. Their kitchen uses predominantly regional products.
The Cajun kitchen changed over time. At first, fish was not part of this delicious cooking, but found its way into seafood from the 19th century. At first fish was used only during Lent but later with the technical development of refrigeration and financial well-being of the workers who found well-paid work in the oil industry, it became an integral part.
Our Cajun spice blend has a wonderful spiciness and a delicate thyme aroma. Even if the Cajun cuisine is anything but vegan or vegetarian, our spice mix will fit in here as well. So don't be shy and try it with your favorite Vegetarian or Vegan dish.
For example, I love sweet potatoes with the spicy Cajun spice mix. Cut the sweet potato into slices and sprinkle them with a mixture of 3 tablespoons oil, a little bit of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon Cajun spices. Season everything with salt and put the potatoes in the oven under the grill until they are well colored and have a nice crust. Absolutely fantastic, ate it to a T-Bone Steak.
The Cajun blend goes very well with cooked beans. To do this, place bacon in a pan and fry it vigorously, then add 1 glass of white (pre-cooked) beans and a can of chopped tomatoes. Some tomato concentrate, salt and 1 tablespoon of Cajun spice mixture. You want it to burn some more? Add a few Bird Eyes chili pods.
Typical Cajun dishes are Dirty Rice (rice cooked with chicken liver), gumbo, jambalaya, fried catfish, cornbread.
