Default Blackened foods

I've tried it all....beef, chicken, fish. I love blackened fish. I can't get enough of it.

However, I'm trying to find the perfect blackening seasoning.

Old Bay blackening seasoning is OUT. Not much flavor.

I like the Phillips Blackening Seasoning but it is missing something.

What about the kind with the fat cajun guy on the label? is that any good?

Emeril's Essence is pretty good.

I make my own seasoning - it goes something like this:

1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Hefty dose of fresh ground pepper
Dash to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on how hot I want it)

Amounts vary - I don't measure much. Sometimes I add a little oregano, basil, and/or thyme, but I usually leave those out.

Here's a recipe for Emeril's Essence:

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Tony Chachere's is pretty good. If you can get it where you live, give it a try.

When it comes to seasoning, nothing beats doing it yourself... except consistancy and convenience. So yeah... it's what I use, because it is prettty good.

I somtimes use his spice mixed to make dip because it's so damn easy.

Pretty much the only thing I season myself are my tacos, and my rib recipe. Even steaks/chicken/pork I use a seasoning salt of some kind.

Simply cannot beat Montreal Steak Seasoning for a steak, IMHO. I also use a Honey salt (can't remember the name right now) on pork chops that is perfect in my opinion.

I have a problem with fish usually--I'm not a big lemon-pepper fan and that seems to be the norm on fish.

I think if it's a good steak then it's a shame to season.

On a great steak I love just salt and coarse black pepper. On an ok steak, you can go to town on the seasonings.

I agree with Brewsmith...depends on the quality of the cut. A nice steak certainly deserves some olive oil, sea salt, and crushed black pepper. I like to salt them 20 minutes or so ahead of time which seems to result in a better crust (which is tangentially on topic).

I don't do blackened, but I will say that I have a new favorite spice: smoked paprika. I love it on everything (except the aforementioned fine steak). It is unbelievable on grilled corn on the cob.
