Zig’s Creole Seaoning Blend


2 tbsp paprika

1 1/2 tbsp onion powder

1 1/2 tbs garlic powder

1 1/2 tbs sea salt

1 1/2 tbsp oregano

1 1/2 tbsp lemon thyme

1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container

This is a slightly milder version of the traditional blend. You may add more cayenne and/or black pepper to liven it up a little more, but my family likes it on the milder side.
