Cajun Seasoning

There as many variations on Cajun seasoning as there are stars in the evening sky. Ok, well, it just seems that way. This is my go-to version. I use it everything Cajun-ish or just anything for that matter. I like my seasoning a bit on the hot side. If you like a little more mellow flavor, cut the amount of cayenne pepper in half.
