OLD BAY Mignonette

mignonette process

Fresh oysters are delicious with simple presentations such as a mignonette. A classic enhancement to the pure, briny flavor of fresh oysters, the OLD BAY and Pernod in this variation add celery seed and fennel flavor to the bright acidity of the shallots and vinegar, bringing new flavor dimension to the raw preparation.

OLD BAY Po'Boy with OLD BAY Tiger Sauce

po boy process

With OLD BAY layered throughout this recipe, bringing a key Mid-Atlantic flavor to a Southern classic has never been so easy. Tiger sauce is made more addictive with the cayenne pepper of OLD BAY playing off the horseradish for an extra kick in the creamy, spicy condiment. OLD BAY is also added to the breading and sprinkled on the freshly fried oysters, making sure the seasoning is layered in to every bite. You can pile the oysters high, but customers still won't be able to get enough!
