I didn't have any Old Bay to cook my shrimp in, so I decided to try this version. I might even like it better than Old Bay, and it was simple to whip up. The chef suggests keeping these ingredients in your cabinet and using them with any chicken, seafood, or vegetables. Or, put them in fancy glass jars and make gifts for the holidays.The chef recommends 1/4 cup of Old Bay Spice with every 2 lbs of shrimp. Recipe courtesy of www.handsongourmet.com. Serving size is estimated.
- 1 tablespoon bay leaf, ground
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons celery salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground white pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground mace
- Combine all ingredients in glass jar and store in a dry place.
Quick and easy. I think it is less expensive in the long run. I can always make it fresh!!!! Since I had to grind the bay, I just put it all in the grinder to get a good blend. Aromatic and wonderful.
