Creole Blackening Blend


This classic Southern Creole Blackening Blend that has a lot of depth, flavor, and heat!

In our travels throughout the South we learned about and fell in love with blackening and using different spices to perfect that sought after flavor-crust that forms when searing on high heat.  We made this blend as an expression of our love for Creole and Cajun cooking!

Whether you are blackening or just using as a rub base, we know your taste buds will enjoy!

To Blacken: Mix melted butter or oil and our Creole Blackening Blend in a small bowl. Coat fish, chicken, or desired piece of meat with the butter/Creole mixture. Heat pan, preferably cast iron skillet, to high heat. Let it get very hot! Add meat to the hot pan and sear a few minutes per side. Lots of smoke may appear, this is normal and part of the blackening process! Enjoy:)

Uses: Use for Blackening your favorite chicken, fish, shrimp, scallops, or meat. Also use as a rub for pork (we LOVE this on pork butt), wings, tuna, French fries, corn-on-the-cob, anything grilled...add to your all of your favorites for lots of flavor and some fiery heat!

*Don't be shy, you are not limited to just Blackening, use this on EVERYTHING!!!


Hand-mixed from: Red Hawaiian Sea Salt, Garlic, Onion, Hungarian Sweet Paprika, Cayenne Chili, French Thyme, Tellicherry Pepper, Chipotle, Oregano, Chili, Lime, Spices

Simply the best Blackening seasoning

The balance of flavors is incredible. My favorite is making blackened salmon with a little bit of blueberry reduction.


All of their products are amazing!

Amazing Combination

We use it at our restaurant for blackening seasoning, and just like all of Steel City's stuff, it doesn't disappoint!

Our Fav

The Creole blend is our family's favorite spice & was happy to see the newer extra-large refill bag.. We found him on the street corner years ago looking for smoked salts & fell in love with all their products.. We will be reordering the cherrywood, hickory, & alderwood soon.
