There are subtle differences between Cajun seasoning and Creole seasoning. While they both come from the great state of Louisiana and contain similar ingredients, the level of heat varies a bit --- Cajun seasoning tends to be a bit hotter. But in reality, the influences of flavors that have made the bayou region the greatest of all US melting pots, the differences between Cajun and Creole are subtle at best.
Our Salt Free Creole Seasoning is inspired by the cooking of New Orleans and is not considered a hot seasoning blend at all. This is a super handy seasoning to have around when you are looking for a quick Creole Cooking dish. Now it does pack the classic pepper flavor of this region with the hotter cayenne pepper giving you your initial delicate blast of heat followed by the black pepper that sparks the middle of your mouth and then the white pepper rears its head towards the back of the mouth giving you its touch of peppery flavor.
Unlike some of the other Cajun and Creole seasonings that we carry this one uses a bit more oregano and basil and has a touch of potent celery seed tossed in as well. To see more on the differences or more aptly the similarities between Cajun and Creole seasonings.
