Tony Chachere's is pretty good. Obviously Paul Prudhomme. Zatarain's.

Here's a low salt recipe I got off the web:

CREOLE SEASONING


A very versatile seasoning blend. Use this as a base seasoning, and build upon it in your dish.

Some versions of Creole seasoning blend contain salt -- I don't do that, because I like to control salt content separately. If you insist on this blend being salty, Š la Tony Chachere's "when it's salty enough, it's perfectly seasoned!" rationale, start with 2 tablespoons salt in the blend, increasing up to 4 tablespoons depending on your sodium tolerance level.

* 2 tablespoons onion powder
* 2 tablespoons garlic powder
* 2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves
* 2 tablespoons dried sweet basil
* 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
* 1 tablespoon black pepper
* 1 tablespoon white pepper
* 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
* 1 tablespoon celery seed
* 5 tablespoons sweet paprika

Combine in food processor and pulse until well-blended, or mix thoroughly in a large bowl. The recipe doubles or triples well. Give lots of it away as gifts to your family and friends.

Tony Chachere's makes a reduced salt version that is very good.

I'll have to give those a shot.

I bought one and cant remember the brand but I dusted a deer roast down with it and put it in the crock pot over night. Tenderness was great but it was so salty that I could hardly eat it. The dog ended up having a great dinner that night and for about a week after...

Tony's also has a no MSG spice as well. That is the one we use.

Although not technically a Cajun seasoning, Big Ronís Hint of Houston is very low salt and has a fair amount of heat to it. May fit what you are looking for.

I love Tony C's seasoning,

I do not really consider it a cajun seasoning, but more of a seasoned-salt that I really like.

McCormicks makes a nice cajun seasoning that has very little salt, and is best used for blackening IMO. I do not know if it is available at grocery stores since I have only seen it in commercial packaging.

I picked up some at a recent visit to a local Penzey's... I'm liking the combination of spices in it. It is not insanely hot, but rather very flavorful.

I always buy Tones from Sams Club, I usually modify it a bit but it is a good base and its got a pretty good kick to it too.

I used to be a big Tony C's fan, but it's salt content is over the top... Slap Ya Mama Hot is about as good as it gets for me.

Well a person got to realize the contrast in terms here. Cajun and Creole is two different breeds of cat so to speak. Fortunantly all the dumbasses is on one side of the Sabine and the coonasses is on the other. Make it taste like celery and heat it up you cant go wrong. There is a bunch of retarded taste sensations at work here...but it all involves celery as far as I can see. Creoles allows tomates whilst coonasses dont fall for it. Hope this helps.

I also used to get Traegers Cajun rub, been a while though. Can't remember if it was salty or not, but it was good.
