*Please note* Schwartz have sent me (this product) for review, but all views are my own!
Growing up in a West Indian household food was and still is a really BIG thing. My family is full of foodies. We love to eat as much as we love to cook. My Nan and Mum even make some of their seasonings from scratch. This is top secret stuff and only certified family members know the ingredients. Because of this I strongly believe that I know a thing or two in the seasoning department. You can imagine my excitement when I was approached to do a product review for Schwartz Cajun seasoning.
I do love me some Cajun because you can sprinkle it on practically anything. I however prefer it on Chicken and so couldn’t wait to try it out. Without any delays I popped into my local supermarket and picked up some key ingredients. I’ve only ever used Cajun seasoning on Chicken because it just goes hand in hand. I decided to whip up some Chicken wings, grilled sweet potato wedges and fresh salad on the side. It took me just under an hour to make everything which was great for me.
My honest OPINION!
In the past I’ve used a different band of Cajun seasoning, so I was a bit on the fence. felt like I was cheating on my go to seasonings brand and I know it sounds silly. The packaging is cute and compact. It fits right into my seasoning collection and doesn’t take up too much space. On the jar it says “Taste of Louisiana” now I’ve never been to Louisiana. However, if this is what Louisiana taste like then get me on the first flight out there ASAP.
I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. I didn’t have to use that much on the Chicken wing. All it needed was a few shakes which is equivalent to about three teaspoons and that will be enough. Don’t ask me how I know. Just know that I know. I’ve been cooking since I was four and I season with my eye opposed to precise measurements.
The Schwartz brand of Cajun seasoning is bursting with flavor. You can actually taste the spices in it like e.g. Cayenne Pepper, Cumin, Oregano and Garlic. With this seasoning in your collection I guarantee you won’t want to waste money at Nando’s in the new year. I’m eager to try the seasoning out on some Salmon just to see if the two go well together. Nevertheless, I was very impressed with the product. Its bursting with flavor, has the right spice and well extremely well with Chicken. It’s definitely a yes from me. I give this product a 10 out 10 JWV star rating!!
Where you can get your Cajun seasoning!
You can grab yourself a bottle of Schwartz Cajun seasoning here. Get in time for Christmas. It would be great for you to try it out on a few recipes. It still confuses me that people don’t season their Chicken. Don’t let that be you this Christmas. Grab yourself a bottle of Schwartz Cajun seasoning and spice things up. If you don’t want to try out on the Christmas menu then you could cook yourself a nice meal as part of the #JWVChallenge?. it sounds like a great plan to me. If you do that please don’t forget to use the hashtag #JWVChallenge and tag me in the pictures on the socials.
Lots of Love
