Pretty close...I am missing the cardamom, so that is probably what is lacking here. My husband started cooking shrimp, but we ran out of Chesapeake Bay Seasoning. I decided to check my favorite recipe website and this is the only one I could find. We will definitely be making it again--with all of the ingredients next time. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Used celery salt instead of celery seed and salt. Did not have ground cardamom on hand. Eliminated red pepper flakes for the children. Good 1st try, but wonder if it would be better if/when I add cardamom to the mix. Used these seasonings in "Captain Duarte's Salt Cod Cakes" instead of Old Bay Seasoning. Its nice to have an alternative to running out to the store on short notice. Yes, thank you for posting.

I think it’s a little salty, and to get the same texture as Old Bay, it probably should be put into the blender to grind up the red pepper flakes. Other than that, it definitely is reminiscent of the real deal, Old Bay.

This is close! I didn't have ground bay leaves so it ran some through my spice mill. Then the rest looked too coarse so I ran the whole thing through the spice mill. I'm thinking the flavors may blend a bit more after being stored together for a while.

Used this for shrimp when it was too cold out to grill. Gave the shrimp a good favor. Will use it again.
