Cajun Dipping Sauce – Barefeet in the Kitchen

Cajun dipping sauce is the supporting star of the seafood boil show, providing a fiery, smoky punch with each bite. (Not a fan of too much heat? Just dial down the cayenne in the recipe below!)

Cajun Dip

My cousin Sydney made this Cajun dip to accompany Rick’s crawfish boil while we were in Louisiana. I asked her for the recipe within minutes of first tasting it. It’s irresistible and I’ve already paired this dip with much more than seafood.

Drizzled over hot roasted potatoes, as a dip for fresh vegetables, and served with grilled chicken, it’s been delicious in every possible way and it’s now a staple in our refrigerator.

As you dip each bite into the sauce, you’ll immediately taste the rich combination of spices, featuring the bold heat of cayenne pepper and the earthy depth of the Creole seasoning.

This sauce packs a punch, making it the perfect complement to the natural sweetness of boiled or steamed seafood like shrimp, crab, crawfish, and lobster.

A hint of lemon juice adds a refreshing tang, enhancing the seafood’s natural flavors. Worcestershire sauce provides an additional distinctive, complex undertone.

Leftover dipping sauce? Oh, that won’t be a problem. I usually double the recipe, to make sure that we’ll have extra sauce on hand. It’s a perfect match for Cajun steak bites, Cajun Brussels sprouts, or crispy Cajun cauliflower.

Drizzle some sauce over these breakfast tacos and wake up your tastebuds deliciously first thing in the morning.

Cajun Chicken with Mushrooms is already an addictive combination of spicy and irresistible little bites. So, paired with this sauce? I can’t get enough.

Try it with crispy oven roasted green beans or air fryer cauliflower. I bet it would rock with these zucchini corn fritters too!
