  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a small bowl, combine the paprika, garlic powder, oregano, onion powder, kosher salt, thyme, and the black and cayenne peppers. Stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to a jar with a lid.
  3. Step 3

    In another small bowl, combine the mayonnaise with the finely chopped green onion, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, and dill relish. Add 3/4 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning (or to taste). Cover and refrigerate the remoulade until serving time.
  4. Step 4

    In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, minced onion, pressed garlic, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Cajun seasoning mixture. Mix to blend thoroughly.
  5. Step 5

    With your hands of a burger press, shape the meat mixture into four burgers. Each burger will weigh approximately 6 ounces. With your thumb, make an indentation in the center of each burger. Refrigerate the burgers until it is time to cook. Store the remaining Cajun seasoning in a cool, dark place.
  6. Step 6

    Heat the grill to medium-high heat. When the grill is hot, brush the grate with olive oil or canola oil. Place the burgers on the grill, indentation side up and grill for about 5 minutes. Carefully flip the burgers and continue grilling for about 4 to 5 minutes longer, or until the burgers register 160 F, the minimum safe temperature recommended by the USDA.
  7. Step 7

    Transfer the burgers to a plate or rack and tent with foil. Let them rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Step 8

    Assemble the burgers on buns with your choice of toppings, along with a generous amount of remoulade sauce.
