Creole Seasoning, a versatile seasoning blend. Creole Seasoning contains paprika, chilli, onion, pepper, mustard, basil, fennel, garlic and salt and acts as a flavour enhancer to everything you shake it on.
The word Creole came from the word Criollo which is what the Spanish governing New Orleans in the 18th century called residents of European heritage. Creole cookery is a combination of French, Spanish and African influences. Creole and Cajun recipes are similar in some respects with the differences between them being defined as city versus country cooking. (Creole cooking being city and Cajun country). Another difference between the two cuisines is that Creole makes more use of tomatoes.
Creole seasoning can be added to water before cooking rice or pasta, added to salad dressings or rubbed onto meat, poultry or seafood before cooking. Try it next time you have a barbecue.
