In Maryland we love our crabs, so anytime we cook with crab meat, we always use Old Bay seasoning to give it that burst of flavor. If you do not like spicy foods, you may use only 1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning or even 1/2 tsp, if you perfer. If you must omit the Old Bay seasoning, be sure to keep the hot sauce.
