Creole Seasoning

There are many recipes for Creole seasoning out there, most are quite similar on their emphasis on paprika, garlic & onion powder and cayenne pepper, but may vary in having basil, thyme and celery seed. This one is basically Emeril's Original Essence Seasoning mix, a little lighter on the peppers to make it more child friendly.

Creole Seasoning


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. thyme
  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. black pepper


    Mix all the ingredients together and keep in an airtight container.
