  • Glass Jars


  • 2 tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Combine the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt in a jar until evenly mixed. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.


  • Yield - This seasoning recipe yields ⅓ cup of seasoning. The nutritional calculations are based on a 1 teaspoon serving.
  • Larger Batch - Want to make a larger batch of blackening seasoning? You can double or even quadruple the recipe.
  • Storage - I like to store my seasoning in a mason jar in my cabinet.
  • Shelf Life - This seasoning mix if stored properly should be good or 3-6 months (although it never last that long in my home).
*Note: Nutritional calculations are estimated and may vary depending on serving size and ingredients.
