Is Creole seasoning the same as Cajun seasoning

Creole and Cajun seasoning blends contain many of the same herbs so they can be good substitutes for each other, but Creole and Cajun seasoning blends are different.

What is the difference between Creole and Cajun Seasonings

Creole Seasoning (like this New Orleans seasoning) is heavily based around herbs whilst Cajun seasoning is based around peppers.

So is Creole Seasoning Spicy?

Creole Seasoning is packed with herbs and spices that give flavor but it isn’t hot and spicy.
But due to the number of peppers in Cajun Seasoning, it is generally spicier than creole seasonings. This makes this New Orleans style Creole Seasoning perfect for introducing flavors to the kids without the spice level.

(Side note – Anyone else’s child stick their tongue into their drink and then try and blow if they eat something spicy. NO? Just my youngest?? Hmmm!)

Creole Seafood Seasoning

If there is any "magic" to our cooking, it's in seasoning mixes such as this. With this mixture, we try to unmask the depth of flavor in our native seafood, not overpower it. We want every bite to display a full flavor profile, so we liberally sprinkle seasoning on the entire piece of fish. That means both sides. Make a decent-sized batch of this mixture so it will always be handy, then rub it or sprinkle it on the food. Remember, mixtures such as this cost very little to make yourself but quite a lot if you buy them at retail.

Recipe Summary

  • 20 pounds frozen cleaned chitterlings, thawed
  • 1 large baking potato
  • 2 large onions, peeled and halved
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 stalks celery, with leaves
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste

Clean the chitterlings by removing all the specks and fat with specks on them. Rinse in several changes of salted water. Place them in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, drain, rinse and fill with enough water to cover again.

Return to the heat and add the potato, onions, green pepper, garlic, celery and vinegar. Season with salt, bay leaf, Creole seasoning and red pepper flakes. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 3 to 4 hours. Chitterlings should appear clear to white in color.

Cut the chitterlings into 1 inch pieces and return to the pot. Pour out most of the cooking liquid. Discard the potato, onions, celery and bay leaf. Heat the chitterlings through and serve with your favorite side dishes. Store the leftovers in the refrigerator. Like so many other great soul food dishes, chitlins taste even better after the flavor has soaked in for a few hours.

What’s the Difference Between Creole and Cajun Seasoning?

Cajun seasoning focuses primarily on a variety of ground peppers (white, black and red).

Creole seasoning commonly contains those as well but also features herbs like thyme, basil and oregano.

Our homemade seasoning blend includes garlic, onion, paprika, cayenne, thyme, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and some smoked pepper for that fabulous smoky element. This seasoning blend is a total flavor explosion!

While Creole and Cajun seasoning are different, their commonalities are such that you can substitute one for the other in a pinch. So you can use this spice blend for anything that calls for Creole or Cajun seasoning.

But don’t limit yourself: This phenomenal spice blend is incredibly versatile!

Question: Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning Mix Recipe?

A few days ago in one of my daily e-mails someone sent in the recipe for Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning mix. I saved it in a recipe folder on my computer and was going to make it but without MSG and a lot less salt. But my dinosaur of a computer had been acting up for a while and it finally died (Boo Hoo!) and I lost hundreds of recipes and other files.

The recipes tend to make the rounds so I'm not too concerned about most of them but I really would appreciate it if whoever sent in that recipe could re-send it. I checked the archives and was unable to find it. Maybe it was from another site but I'm desperate. I really need this recipe so if anyone out there has it, please post it.

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

Recipe By : Tony Chachere
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
26 ounces salt
1 1/2 ounces black pepper -- ground
2 ounces red pepper -- ground
1 ounce garlic powder -- pure
1 ounce chili powder
1 ounce Monosodium glutamate -- (Accent)

Mix well and use like salt. When it's salty enough, it's seasoned to perfection. For barbeque and fried foods: Season food all over. Cook as usual.

To take it way back, Cajuns come from French colonists who originally settled in present-day New Brunswick and Nova-Scotia (North of Maine).

These people, called the Acadians, were eventually kicked out by the British. They found their way down south, to the swamps of Southern Louisiana. There they learned to live off the land and became an incredibly resourceful people.

Cajun cuisine is heavy on French influence but has been adapted to a more rustic way of living. Most Cajun dishes begin with a medley of onions, celery, and bell peppers. (As opposed to the onions, celery, and carrots found in the traditional French mirepoix.)

Cajun dishes are thickened with a roux of lard or oil and flour, since butter (and all dairy) was a luxury that most of these rustic people couldn&rsquot afford.

Ever wonder what the difference between Creole and Cajun is?

Well I did and after reading up on the terms it all boils down to this.

Cajun is a word used to describe the French colonists who moved from the Acadia region of Canada down to Louisiana after the British conquest of Acadia (known today as present-day New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia) in the 1700s.

Creole is a term used to describe the people who were born to these new settlers in French colonial Louisiana, especially New Orleans.

Another thing I might add is that typically Creole food uses tomatoes and Cajun food does not.

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse several times to combine and store in an airtight container.
