Old Bay Seasonings and Jambalaya!



First of all, thank you very much to Old Bay for contacting me and sending me such a wonderful gift bag. I was overwhelmed! There is a great tote bag which I will use both for shopping and for the beach. A HUGE box of Old Bay seasoning, a beach towel, recipes,a temporary tattoo, a key chain and a seasoning and shrimp steamer bag. Wow!




I have a few plans for the recipes but first off I used the Old Bay to make Jambalaya.

While the water was simmering for the rice and seasonings, I chopped some sausage and had shrimp ready for peeling.



I used medium sized pink gulf shrimp. They are sweeter in taste.




When the rice is ready for the pot, stir it in with 2 teaspoons of Old Bay (or to your taste) then add the sausage and shrimp.


It's simmering away..........



We served it with Barefoot Wine, tried a Pinot Grigio, and it was a very good combo. Refreshing to sip after shaking too much hot sauce over the jambalaya!



A side of Sister Shubert rolls...my son's favorite are the ones with sausages inside. They are tiny cocktail type sausages. Funny story about the first time we ever had these. Now isn't the time for it.......







Next week, after Kahlua week, I plan to try some Old Bay recipes for dip, a grilled tuna dish and use that steamer bag. Stay tuned!

I've only seen Old Bay Spices on other American food blogs - I've never actually seen the spices up here. This looks like a great dish, Pierce!

I've never heard of those rolls before, so I can't wait to hear the story.

And did you say Kahlua? Sigh...

WC, if you are in Washington see if the WalMart has them in stock. Lends a bit of different flavor. Is that an item that can be shipped from the US? They always ask me so much when I ship outside the US...no wine, nothing flamable....

Janel - I was just mentioning a Lewbowski Fest while thinking of the Kahlua...that would be a blast ;-)

I hope I can get to Colville sooner than later. None of my family seems to want to go these days, though.

I expect it's OK to ship spices. You can for sure bring them across the border as they are a grocery item.

Great use of Old Bay! I love jambalaya and this version looks scrumptious!

Zuppa di Pesce <br>{Fish Stew}</br>

A few weeks ago Doug found this recipe for a fish stew. It looked good so we saved our leftover fish from other dinners (froze it) and used...
