I've several recipes calling for Old Bay Seasoning, which I haven't been able to find where I live. I've made the same recipes without and with your Old Bay Seasoning mix and what a difference! I'm now planning to make small jars of this seasoning to give as gifts for Christmas. Thankyou for a great recipe.

Miss Annie! Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe for Old Bay. It's not available in Australia and trying to explain the taste to my husband was difficult at best. For him to taste it...he thought it was terrific! My crab cakes came out very well with this seasoning added in!

I usually buy Old Bay Seasoning from the store, but tonight I mixed this up because we were out. I used it to season catfish, and it tasted so delicious and much fresher than the store-bought blend. Thanks for sharing.

We also have no idea what Old Bay Seasoning tastes like but did give it a try in Panko Crusted Tilapia. The fish and this recipe were delicious! Thanks for posting.

I have to admit that I have no idea what Old Bay Seasoning really tastes like -- we can't buy it in Australia. But I did make this recipe to use in Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Soup. It worked beautifully. Thanks so much for posting a go-to recipe for me.

Fabulous! Tasted even better than Old Bay. Fresher spices I guess!

I have used this recipe since 2004. I don't buy packaged seafood seasoning. It makes a wonderful Low Country Boil!

This was a wonderful introduction to such a great seasoning. I made it to add to Should Be Illegal Oven BBQ Ribs, but I can see there being so many more uses for it. Thanks Di for sharing this keeper.
