  • Creole Seasoning vs. Cajun Seasoning
    I have a small container of Tony Chachere's Creole and have seen a few recipes that contain Cajun Seasoning. Are these two seasonings the same thing...can I interchange them? I know the Creole seasoning is like a seasoning salt with spices - not sure about cajun seasoning.

    Thanks for the help! Susan

    Yep, they are the same thing, and if they aren't EXACTLY the same, there is very little difference at all. Cajun seasoning is a very generic term because here in Louisiana, almost every resturant/chain/aspiring cook has thier own special blend that they market, and you can find it in stores, gas stations, festivals, resturants, casino gift shops, and just about everywhere else. (Tony's, Bayou Magic, and even Season-all are all pretty similar.)The only difference is that I know Tony's makes a couple of different varieties, such as "garlic herb", and these do have a different tase. But plain Tony's is a a good generic cajun seasoning.

    Thanks SarahCeleste - that saved me from going out, buying the cajun seasoning and saying, 'hey this is the same thing as creole!'

    Tony Chachere is Cajun but when he firts created the recipe (1950's?) Cajun was considered an insult so Mr. Tony called it Creole seasoning

    I have a recipe for fried green beans that calls for both cajun seasoning AND creole seasoning.  I agree, they seem to be the same.  I guess I can use Tony C's for both, would you agree?
