Spice Essentials: Savory Seafood Seasoning

Andy Anderson !


If I were to compare this seasoning with something on the market, I would say: Old Bay Seasoning. It is similar to, but not quite the same as that famous spice.

I wanted something with a bit more “earthier” flavor notes, and not quite so salty. This is what I came up with.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
