Five Guys Burger Cajun Spice Ingridients
Does anyone know what Five Guys puts in its cajun spice seasoning? I'm wanting to replicate it at home, and am wondering if this is public knowledge or not.
Thanks in advance!
It's a fair bet it's not public knowledge. As to Cajun spice, there are as many blends as there are Cajun kitchens. One quick search turned this up: "The Cajun Fries at Five Guys are the same as the regular fries, natural cuts, but dusted heavily with Cajun seasoning. The seasoning includes, according to the manager on duty, salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, white pepper, and 'spice.' These are hot, oh so hot. So hot I think I burned the tip of my tongue and the roof of my mouth, yow. I had to suck on ice cubes to cool off." http://frenchfrydiary.blogspot.com/20...
No doubt the missing "spice" is Cayenne, although there may be some herbs in there as well. Basil, oregano, and thyme all see duty, alone or in pairs, in various Cajun spice blends.
