These are recipes that feature Old Bay as an ingredient. Old Bay isn't something I grew up using - I just purchased my first can recently - so it's new to me and I wanted to collect recipes to see what it's all about.
This is my favorite way to eat potatoes! These are baked, no fat added, and seasoned with very little salt. Great to accompany grilled food or even as an appetizer or snack! Cook/Preparation time does not include time for soaking potatoes in water.
I'm not a huge fan of the classic sweet potato casserole, so I concocted this dish. The reds, oranges, and yellows are perfect for fall entertaining! Then I decided that the flavors would complement tilapia, orange roughy, or any white fish really well. It was a hit as both a vegetable side and as a full meal.
This was adapted from Aliza Green from Field Guide to Herbs & Spices. A little different from the recipes already here. Traditionally, this seasoning is used for steamed crabs, but is now used for fish, potato salad, potatoes, and other vegetables. This would also make a great gift, along with some recipes! Enjoy!
***Update: This is the Crab Cake recipe used for building the Nutty for New England Naughty but Nice Crab Burger for one of the challenges in the Spring 07 Zaar Tour world!
I have lived most of my life near the Chesapeake Bay and spent many summers in Maryland as a child. This is the original recipe that was on the back of the Old Bay can. This version contains baking powder which helps make the crab cakes light and fluffy. We have always added a little lemon juice and browned them in butter which I feel really brings out the flavor and absolutely makes these. Try refrigerating the shaped patties 30 minutes to help keep them together when cooking,
This is a Summertime favorite of ours served with Corn on the Cob and Coleslaw!
This recipe originally came from McCormick. The dried herb McCormick's version is pratically perfect but recently, I tried substituting fresh herbs for the dried version and it was amazing. My children don't like shrimp, but they love the pasta tossed in the sauce from this dish. I've substituted chicken for the shrimp also which they love.
I got this recipe from a Southern Living Magazine a couple of years ago. It was an instant favorite, and I get so many requests for the recipe that I figured I would make it easy on myself and just post it. I usually use more Old Bay, Tabasco, and scallions than it says, cause I like a little extra kick. It really is AWESOME, especially with crusty french bread.
I love Old Bay Seasoning and was looking for new ways to use it. I had several "coastal creations" as I call them and this one is one that people enjoy the most out of them. And by the way, your house is going to smell like a seaside seafood restaurant while this is cooking!
The suprise hits of this year's Thankgiving dinner were the vegetable side dishes. This was the green vegetable I served. I used red Swiss chard, giving the dish a holiday look. The dish can be finished in the oven while the turkey is resting.
Love this stuff... I think it's best suited to (of course) fish or seafood, but also chicken or a Cornish hen. I love the bite of the Tabasco and the flavor of the seasonings blending with the crab. I like to use whole-grain bread for its benefits, but white bread sure tastes good here!
This is just a variation of the way my dad used to make fried chicken. Frying at high temperature for a short period of time (just enough to brown the outside) and then baking it to finish makes for incredibly tender and juicy chicken.
This was fun. This is our 5th summer having this. Of course it 's always different! This year my DS 's Lydia brought the lobster, and Theresa brought the Dungeness crabs as well as regular crabs. This is made in those outdoor boiler-fryers. But I won 't stop you from making it on your stove top. We covered the table with plastic tablecloths then covered it with brown paper (paper used for wrapping packages). And of course you can cut down the recipe. Just leave the first 8 ingredients as is then add whatever and amount of seafood you 'd like. Don 't forget the bibs or aprons and nutcrackers, hammers, small mallets, nut picks and paper towels. Oh an empty large foil pan or a trash can for discarding the shells. Don't forget plenty of beer! Crawfish and mussels would be great in this too.

I had a very similar salad in Little Italy near the Baltimore Harbor. It was fabulous! This is the closest I have come to it. This is pretty darn good too! A wonderful summertime salad! Serve as an appetizer salad, a side salad, light lunch or for brunch. It makes a very nice presentation and will be sure to impress guests. :)
P.S. Do not substitute canned crabmeat or imitation it will not taste the same!
