This is one of my favorites Steve. I don't really use the recipe any more and each time I make it, I add something else that is in season or sometimes use other beans.

It always turns out well.

I hope you enjoy it!

Big ole orange punkin....Ha!

I switch ingredients around all the time in this one. It's fun to see what it will be each time. I've never left the corn out, so let me know how it turns out for you!

You can even de-head and peal the shrimp if you like! I leave them on for additional flavor and so I can squeeze out the head juices! It's like a flavor slam on your taste buds. Serious Yum!

Hey Luca, Old Bay includes mustard, paprika, celery seed, bay leaf, both black and red pepper, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom, salt, mace and ginger. It is regionally popular, specifically in Southern States and parts of the Gulf Coast.

We get it here in midAmerica, too, the can says it's been around over 70 years. Great with any seafood, it's a big part of Maryland crab boil on the east coast as well.

I remember seeing a version you can make yourself, I think in Copykat recipes.
