Two Must Have Seafood Seasonings: Old Bay & Zatarain's Crawfish, Shrimp & Crab Boil

These two must haves are a staple in your pantry for cooking shellfish and fish.  I have this on hand all the time!

If you are in a bind and need to make a quick shrimp cocktail these seasonings are the way to go.  Add to beer or cider vinegar, steam and your done in minutes!

Old Bay has been around longer than I have.  It's great for Seafood, Poultry, Salads, and Meats.

Zatarain's has been around forever also, since 1889!  It is a staple for New Orleans type seafood boils!  It gives it that extra spice I absolutely love.

Zatarain's has simple ingredients: Mustard Seed, Corinader Seed, Cayenne Pepper, Bay Leaves, Dill Seed, Allspice in a boil in bag ready to toss in a pot and cook your crabs, craw fish, lobster or anything else you desire!

Old Bay's ingredients: Celery Salt, Mustard, Red Peppers, Black Pepper, Bay Leaves, Cloves, Allspice, Ginger, Mace, Cardamom, Cinnamon and Paprika.

Old Bay is even great in Bloody Mary's.

I will post quick and easy delicious recipes for you using these two seasonings!
