What is Old Bay seasoning and is there a substitute?
Old Bay seasoning is a blend of more than a dozen herbs and spices and you'll see it called for most often in seafood recipes. If you don't have any Old Bay, try substituting 1 tbsp of crab boil or 1 tablespoon of pickling spice for 1 tablespoon of Old Bay.
One classic use of Old Bay seasoning is in Frogmore Stew, also known as a Low Country Boil.
