Blackened Seasoning

The other day, hubby requested me to cook a healthy menu for our dinner. He suggested me to try on a fish dish; blackened fish dish in particular. Found out a healthy blackened fish dish from Men's Health magazine and decided to try it cause we both were sooo tempted by the illustration of the dish..!

One of the main ingredients to prepare the dish is the blackened seasoning. I went to Jaya Supermarket but couldn't find it at the spices area. Too lazy to check out other supermarket, I just bought all the spices needed and decided to prepare my own blackened seasoning; something I want to share with you today :)

Blackened Seasoning


2 teaspoons ground paprika

4 teaspoons dried leaf thyme
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or to your taste
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Place all the spices into an air-tight jar or a ziplocked bag, and shake well to mix them up. Labelled it as the Blackened Seasoning and store it in a dry, dark area.
Easy, peasy...Now you can marinate/season either fishes, seafood or even chicken with this seasoning and have a nice easy peasy meal. What to do with the remaining spices from the ingredients? You used it to prepare other seasoning or just used it for other meal ;)

p.s: Will share the fish dish recipe soon, insyaAllah. Stay tuned!
