Cajun Seasoning Grilling Rub

I love seasoning meat, especially chicken, with this delicious Cajun grilling rub. Eliot's Eats has cleverly put together a series of yummy meat rubs and packaged them up like you see in the gourmet gift section of specialty stores. These little bottles of herby, salty meat rubs were beautifully packaged in a wooden cigar box.
Still on my Christmas and family holiday hangover, and very disorganized in the blogging department, I left my Secret Recipe Club assignment to the last minute, and was very blessed to find a yummy, quick recipe to make, which also created a very tasty dinner for my husband at the end of the day. Don't forget to check out the other seasonings at Eliot's Eats that you can make to complete a seasoning gift pack! It's particularly hard to find presents for men, and I think this one would just about cover it for most--plus, it's DIY, awesomely unique, personalised, and who doesn't like meat? Okay vegans and vegetarians, I wasn't talking to you.


5 tsp. paprika
4 tsp. fine sea salt
4 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. dried thyme

Combine all ingredients.
Place in a zip lock bag until ready to use or bottle to give as a gift.
For a recipe idea, check out this delicious Cajun chicken with mango and avocado salsa. Dinner sorted!


  1. Sounds delicious. Love the photos, too!

  2. Hm, that sounds like it could be used for a lovely and delicious meaty meal. I like the idea for gift giving. Now, I came via the Secret Recipe Club. I reckon, if I continue following the links to the partners, I will be busy all day. Anyway, onward to Eliot's Eats ...

  3. Love Cajun food, so I definitely will be trying out this rub!

  4. I love spice mixes and this one looks really tasty perfect on roasted veggies or potato wedges.

  5. Beautiful photos and this would be such a nice gift for a cook. Like Nayna said, this would be delish over roasted veggies too.
