Old Bay is fantastic. It's very mildly spicy and great with seafood, or on your side dishes when you are pairing with seafood. It's a popular spice here in Maryland (think Baltimore crabs). I made a light crab dip this weekend, and was just saying to my husband that next time I make it I'll have to add old bay.

You're welcome, I hope it turns out well.
I had never even heard of it (I'm British and I guess it doesn't exist over here) but it sounds like a really interesting combination to go with seafood (or anything else, for that matter).
Can someone tell me if there is a recipe out there for making Old Bay Seasoning? I have never used it, but see recipes calling for it and wondered if I could use a combo of seasonings I have at home.....well I guess what I am really asking is what does Old Bay taste like? Thanks
