Blackening spice or southwestern seasoning recipe

I know they are two completely different things but my dinner can go either way tonight. I’ve got some shrimp and chicken thighs and a well seasoned cast iron pan.  Just looking for a new spice mixture to try.
 

Anyone out there have a good recipe they care to share?

If you want an easy place to start, Paul Prudome is da man in the cajun space. You can search for his Blackening spice blends. However, his magic blends are in most markets and work quite well.

Thanks - I usually mix up my own with thyme oregano paprika garlic cayenne salt and pepper. Was curious if someone had a good home brew recipe. Thanks for sharing, prudhommes stuff is great but was looking for a DIY recipe.  Prudomes pork and veal magic is a favorite of mine.

Thanks for sharing, it sounds good and I’ll give it a try.

 

I’ll share my blackening spice recipe is below, I don’t measure strictly when cooking so may need some tweaks to get it where you like it:

 

2-3 parts paprika

1 part each:

onion powder

garlic powder

oregano

dried thyme (crush it to powder with your fingertips)

black pepper

1/2 part cayenne pepper (or to your taste)

salt to your taste

 

I mix this up right when I’m going to use it since I find it tends to taste flat after a few days in a jar.

Invest in a spice grinder and save you fingers.

Very similar to what I use.  Only difference would be I typically put in smoked paprika at about 1 part (and an extra half part onion powder).
