Old Bay Seasoning?
I made some crab dip and in a lot of the reviews people are raving about old bay seasoning for the dip and on crabs in general. I've honestly never heard of it. Is it like Tony's? Anything different about it?

I love Old Bay. It's out of Maryland, I think. Used a lot in that area to steam various types of seafood. Not has spicy hot or salty as Tony's, to me. Has more of a variety of spices and probably a good bit of ground celery seed. Give a try on a few dishes.

I make my own OB blend, and it's much cheaper. I don't use it that often, but it's a star atop fresh tomatoes in my smoker.

Here's a recipe if you're interested or at least curious as to the ingredients...

I like old bay as well. Good on steamed seafood like crab legs and royal reds. I also use in my BBQ shrimp.

Yes, it's definitely from Maryland. It's mostly known for being paired w/ blue claw crabs, especially in the Chesapeake areas.

I'll add, throw some on your popcorn next time. Adds a great kick. Good on pizza too.

I used Old Bay to make some awesome tuna egg rolls.

To the tuna, mix in:

mayonnaise
Old Bay
plain bread crumbs
beaten egg

Roll the mixture into an egg roll next to a stick of quality American cheese. Fry as usual.

Old bay is solid. Similar seasoning profile to many you get down here, but lacks overbearing salt like many you get down here.

It's good heavy on the celery.

I really like it on avocado slices and pop corn.

I've had good success using Old Bay to season ribs when feeling to lazy to put a rub together.

I've also used it to season burgers before grilling.

Old Bay kicks ass. We mix it into a shite ton clarified butter and slobber it all over a bag new potatoes.

Win.

Same here. We went on an Old Bay binge a couple of years ago and tried it on burgers and loved it. We put some Dale's as well and the combo was surprisingly good.

Bland. It's basically celery salt. I use it for canned tuna and bloody marys.

I like it a lot and use it the same as everyone listed. I also like to throw on a little when I'm blackening fish.
