Cajun seasoning is like a multiple-layered depth charge. Fennel seed, cumin, mustard powder and cayenne are accompanied by sage, oregano, and thyme; garlic and onion are there too. This recipe expands on it by boosting the pungent warmth of cumin, and adds a floral, orange-based sweetness of coriander. The thyme is there to keep things clean at the end of the mouthful. With the coffee this makes for a muscular, yet elegant dish.
