Old Bay Seafood One Step seasoning is a great way to make a quick meal without thinking about how to blend spices and how much vinegar or lemon to add. Everything is already mix and is in the sealed package. Now, Old Bay Seafood One Step isn’t simply Old Bay Seasoning mixed with flavors of vinegar and lemon, it’s a mix with some interesting heat and flavors. We have already made a post about Old Bay Steamed Shrimp, so if that’s what you want here is the Old Bay Steamed Shrimp recipe.
Here is a close up picture of Old Bay Seafood One Step Spicy Blend. If you look closely, you’ll see it’s made with a variety of spices. The official ingredient list on the box says “Ingredients: Spices (Including Red Pepper, Mustard Seed, Black Pepper, and Coriander), and Lemon Peel.” Looking at the picture of the spices in Old Bay Seafood One-Step I also see Whole Black Pepper, crushed Bay Leaves, Cloves, Fennel, & Poppy Seed. When you open the package you’ll know there is lemon peel in the mixture. Believe Me!
So this is such a simple way to make steamed shrimp. What you do is bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large stock pot, and then add the Old Bay Seafood One-Step. Mix well, then add up to four pounds of shrimp, mix well, heat back to a full boil and cook over medium to high heat for 7 to 8 minutes or until done. Then drain and let cool some before serving (you can see the steam rising off our serving in the picture above). Serve with cocktail sauce.
