"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
From New Orleans Seafood Cookbook (Canada, UK), by Andrew Jaeger and John DeMers.

This spice blend gets its name from its use in "blackening" seafood or meat over very high heat in Cajun restaurants. It's our all-purpose Creole/Cajun spice blend. We recommend it highly over the commercial mixes available in grocery stores.
