Clean Eat Recipe :: Make Your Own Old Bay Seasoning

Looking to cook up some shrimp or want to make a fancy dinner with lobster? Now you can make your own version of Old Bay seasoning from spices you already have in your cabinets.

The recipe comes from the not-so-clean (although this recipe is) book, The Best of Top Secret Recipes by Todd Wilbur. I have it in my collection because in college, before I started eating clean, I stole it from my mother because there was a recipe to make your own 3 Musketeer and Wendy's Frosty.

Old Bay Seasoning
The Best of Top Secret Recipes, Todd Wilbur, pg 192

1 TBSP celery salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp black pepper

pinch cinnamon
pinch cardamom

Mix all together in a small bowl.

Yields 4 tsp of seasoning.

  1. I was SO thrilled to find this on Pinterest!! I love making my own spice blends and love me some old bay.

  2. I thought old bay was already clean ?

    1. It has some caking ingredients that aren't that big of a deal, but if you want to eliminate those, you can make your own!

  3. Surprised that there are no bay leaves in it:)
