Zatarain's Blackened seasoning. Aiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeee!
I'll have what he's having.
It really depends on what it's going on. For fish I like Redfish Magic. For other stuff I often use a thing of Tony's.
Cavenders Greek Seasoning or Montreal Steak Seasoning here...
I like Paul Prudhomme's Magic seasonings.
I like Tony's, just a little and it kicks flavor up a notch. Now you can use a lot, and be ready with the fire extenquisher on both ends if we can catch you.
I don't know what Red Eyes Hog counts as, but the stuff is magic.
I've never tried any....
I buy Zatarain's for certain things (like seafood boil) but for most other Cajun I use Tony's.
Cavender's also has a place in my spice cupboard. Good stuff.
Red eyed hog has a permanent place in my camping grub box. Come to think of it I just opened my last one. Time to get more. I shudder to think if I ever ran out... the horror!
I think you guys are making these names up!
@The Woodsrunner sells it via his Tuff Possum Etsy store.
Good stuff. Works great on breakfast skillets, meats, even grilled veggies.
Redfish Magic here. Many of the others are quite salty and the salt is the first thing to hit my taste buds. Not so with the Magic blends.
So far it looks like two for Tony's and 7 "others". @Odinborn any chance you'd bring a little Red Eyed Hog to our next get-together?
Only if you ask nicely
Loaded question... I just moved up from there (LA)... in 16 years, I never did acquire the taste for 'hot'. Most of the locals liked Slap Ya Mama... said Tony's was too salty.
I've used Tony's for years, but right now I'm an a 2 year Slap Ya Mama kick. It has more heat.
I'm still stuck in the stone age, I still use Old Bay Seasoning when I want a bit of a spicy kick, I have to get with the times and buy some of these seasonings mentioned here!
I go to L'auberge in Lake Charles and Baton Rouge any chance I get. I have them do a custom seasoning for me at the buffet where they make custom order shrimp/fish.
My favorite place for that kind of food is at The Juicy Crab in Atlanta. They cook what you order in an oven bag and give you gloves to eat it. Don't rub your eyes! Really good food. My eyes water when I eat it.
I don't get that kind if food often enough.
Old Bay. Many here already know my love for this stuff.
A hunting buddy swears by Cajun Werewolf Loup Garou seasonings. Don't know what it tastes like or what's in it. I've lived in Louisiana all my life and never developed a taste for anything hot or Cajun. I just like my food simple so I can taste it, not some added goop, except salt and black pepper.
I like the slap ya mama spicy in the white can. A little goes a long way.
Almost any cayenne pepper sauce. Goes with everything, even ice cream!
Picked up some Slap yo momma acouple of weeks ago. I liked the "heat" but find it too salty for my tastes.
LOL, "Slap ya momma"?! I'm an Old Bay northerner!
I much prefer to taste the meat I'm eating rather than cover it up . what's the point ?
When I was a kid and wanted a hot dog but didn't have one, I just put catsup and mustard on bread and ate that, and it was no different.
If I am cooking a rattlesnake it's just rattle snake nothing else .
Yucatán Sunshine Habanero Pepper Sauce is good and not too hot as is Crystal hot sauce. Louisiana Cajun Seasoning is a good dry rub.
I’m my misspent youth I was a waiter at a Cajun restaurant. Tony Chachere was in everything. It’s good stuff! We also had a huge mantel that was full of different hot sauce, and the chef wouldn’t let people have butter for the cornbread. My friend Kim made the pralines for that place and once in a while he still makes me some along with a big batch of crawfish etouffee. Good times!

Um... I see 41 votes.
Tony's had a very metallic taste to me... in cornbread at least. So I usually mix mix own. Can post the recipe if anyone is interested.
Okay, I'm an idiot. Apparently you have to click on the "view results" button.
Rule #1 - If you don't know how to view the results of a poll, DON'T make one!!
Sure, post it up if you don't mind!
I did RSVP
Yes, recipe please.
Oh, I don't know what that means!!! Lol
Alright, I caved in and bought some "Slap Ya Mama" while I was at Walmart!
I'm gonna need to prepare some type of dish and compare it to my usual Old Bay seasoning, I might make some scrambled eggs in the morning and sprinkle some Slap Ya Mama on it to try, or sprinkle it on a baked salmon filet for dinner.
It's good on egg, fish, chicken, etc. I had some last night on fried onions and peppers with kielbasa.
@StinkBait one shall never stray too far from the glory of Old Bay.
Oh buddy! Cayenne pepper sauce in hot chocolate, to make that "Mayan Hot Chocolate" is to DIE for!
Reply Soon, Very Portent
Today I was at the grocery and picked up some Tony Chachere's to try out, it tasted way too salty to me, I like the Slap Ya Mama you guys convinced me to try wayyy more than the Tony Chachere's!
So far I'll be sticking with my tried and true Old Bays Seasoning, and the Slap Ya Mama for my spicier dishes, now I'm in the mood for some spicy Cajun seasoned french fries!
EDIT: I just read that Tony Chachere's has a version with less salt and more heat, I'll be looking for that one to try! I'm going to donate the Original to my workmates.
