What Is Creole Seasoning:
This is a New Orleans-style blend and quite easy to whip up. The ingredients that are very familiar to us that are herbs or spices we generally use in our houses. Some prefer the homemade ones which don’t even require a spice grinder.
Homemade Creole seasoning does not require much effort as well. All you need to do is take your ingredients and use a tablespoon for proper measurement. After that just blend them all together. To be honest for a perfect blend you just need your chef inside to be a maestro.
While making homemade creole, there are some ingredients you just need to have in your cupboard. These are like the weapons you need to have in your arsenal. These are-
- black pepper
- dried basil
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- salt flakes
- dried thyme
- cayenne pepper
- dried oregano
These are some ingredients you need to have for the DIY. But you know everyone has their own requirements or own preferences. So, there can be some variations. There can be some additions or subtractions in the ingredient list. But try to keep the above-mentioned items at least. Because those should be enough if you are a beginner or just want to try the general recipe.
How to Make Creole Seasoning:
i. Measure the ingredients using a tablespoon.
Few Tips While Making Homemade Creole Seasoning:
These recipe tips will certainly help you to create your perfect homemade blend.
Mixing up the salt:
Mixing up the salt brings a good amount of variations in taste. You can use the regular salt and that is the easiest way out. Or you can just mix it up a bit. And by that, I meant the use of kosher salt or Himalayan salt. This depends on you how you prefer your creole seasoning. But try to keep the ratio of the ingredients as it is required.
Use of add-ons:
As said before, it is not mandatory for you to follow the conventional system. You can just spice the thing a bit if you want. And using some add-ons never harm. But obviously, try not to overdo it. Because this might result in something that does not suit your taste. Or in other words, something of a disaster. Smoked paprika and pepper flakes are commonly used ones.
This makes an amazing rub that you can use on fish or meat. This certainly spices the thing a bit. You can cook the whole thing in a skillet, oven, or fryer.
Make batches depending on your usage:
This step can certainly save you some money or at least some effort. So try to detect how much you are going to need and just the amount accordingly.
Grinding into powder:
If you like to use it as a powder then just mix all the ingredients into a spice grinder. Then grind into powder.
Using as paste:
Using creole seasoning as paste can be really helpful sometimes. Especially if you are using it as a rub. Then while rubbing over the fish or meat can be really easy and effective. For this, you need to mix the seasoning with oil before using it.
Creole Vs Cajun Seasoning:
Creole and cajun seasoning are almost the same. They can also be used for the same purpose if it is required. They almost even look alike. But there are some differences no doubt.
Creole seasoning has more ingredients whereas cajun seasoning is quite basic. Cajun seasoning is made using basic things like garlic powder, ground peppers, onion, cayenne pepper, black pepper, etc. Whereas creole seasoning adds a wide range of herbs like oregano or thyme which ranges up to basil and paprika.
How to Use Creole Seasoning:
If you use the seasoning you are using just as you wish, you will never get the taste you were looking for. You need to know the perfect amount to use and the perfect way to follow to find that extra jazz you were searching for. Some of the exemplary uses of creole seasoning are-
The creole can be mixed with olive oil and lemon or vinegar to use as a marinade. This marinade will help to increase flavor or add new textures to the surface.
You can just simply sprinkle that all over the vegetables. You can do this liberally and this will help in toasting.
This can work excellently as a rub for both meat and fish. Not only that you can use it on pork, lamb, or steak as well.
On Sothern dishes:
Southern people generally like their things a bit spicey. So they have a good use for creole seasoning.
On the grill:
Season the meat that you are about to grill before grilling takes place.
The amount of seasoning to use:
Now, this is a really vital point we are going to discuss now. The perfect amount is the key. Where using less is will not have the right impact, excess of anything is also bad. So, we need to know how much is the right amount.
Extreme use of the seasoning is very bad. so you should start from lower than u think is required. Then add more if required. So my suggestion is to use one tablespoon where 2 tablespoons you think is required. Then increased up to two tablespoons if you think that will taste better than using less than two tablespoons.
You can also use it as a gift. I am quite sure if that person is a foodie he/she will just love it. But you need to put in some effort. Use a cute spice jar or a mason jar and fill it with the mix. Also, use a ribbon because enhancing the decoration a bit never hurts. And your gift for your foodie friend is ready!
There are some other things we need to discuss-
There might rise some scenarios where you don’t have all the ingredients required to prepare the creole seasoning. You will be happy to know that there is a way out for you. It is best if you have some cajun seasoning. Then you need to see which ingredients you have. Just mix those with the seasoning mix to flavor your food.
There are also some questions about how to and where to store it. And also for how long to store it. And they especially arise in the case of a homemade seasoning mix. You can store it for up to 6 months. You will need an airtight spice jar for that purpose. And for larger quantities, you can also use a mason jar.
Keep it in a cool place and away from direct sunlight. Honestly, a homemade seasoning can survive more than 6 months. But the taste and the flavor don’t remain vibrant. So while making a batch just keep in mind that how much is enough for six months and don’t try to make more than that.
At this point, I am going to discuss some of our products.
