If you’ve ever had blackened chicken, you know what this stuff will do to your chicken or fish: make it spicy, flavorful, and…well, kinda black! This is my second favorite way to eat salmon, coating it in this before cooking it. (This is my first favorite.) This is perfect if you’re low-carbing it–just serve your blackened meat with veggies…or if you’re lovin’ the carbs, head on over to Suzie’s blog to get a recipe for Olive Garden’s copycat fettucine alfredo to serve with your blackened goodness!
Printable recipe with picture
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
Stir all spices together and store in an airtight container. Rub onto chicken, salmon, or meat of choice before pan-frying or grilling.
And familiar, I’m sure. It was your hubby that introduced me to this seasoning!! Ever since he made it back in the mission days, Dennis has loved blackened chicken and I love I finally have a recipe to keep on hand to blacken whatever he may desire. :)
Yeah, I totally need to make Suzie’s OG alfredo with the blackened chicken. This post just further confirms it. =)
I know, I don’t usually even like alfredo sauce but every time I see her pics…I really want to try her recipe! lol
V, my son loves the salmon this way too :) The chicken is probably my fav and I’ve sprinkled it on top of a baked potato too…yum! Thanks for linking to me.
I love blackened fish, shrimp, chicken, etc :) It is definitely time I try to make it on my own.
I love anything blackened, although have learned my lesson to cook it outside on the grill so I don’t cough from the spice when I cook it inside!
I’ll try that one!! :D
LOL, what were you doing, blowing a fan on your stove when you were cooking? lol! I’ve never had the spices make me cough but I do like the sound of this grilled. I love the smoky flavor grilling gives to meat!
Hello, that lovely site!
I loved your recipes and how put each of them, congratulations!
Thank you so much for stopping in! :)
Ive always just bought a commercially prepared mix…never thought about mixing up my own. I will have to give this a go next time!!
I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a mix for this! haha! So I have no idea how it compares, I hope it’s as good.
I used to work at Olive Garden! :D As a server!
With your engaging personality, I bet you really raked in the tips! :)
Love this! I love my tilapia blackened. Never knew the homemade seasoning could be so easy! And I have all of the ingredients on hand :)
