    Default Creole seasoning

    I am deep frying a turkey this Christmas, and the (American) marinade recipe calls for 'creole' seasoning, among others. Do I find this in the supermarkets here in the DR under 'creole' or is it called something else here? The American 'creole' may be totally different than the local 'creole' thats why I am asking.

    They prob mean Old Bay Seasoning. It would be great if that was available in the DR, but I'm not optimistic.

    I've never heard of a spice mix simply called "Creole" seasoning.

    I usually rub the bird with oil and then season it with either poultry seasoning(mostly sage) or powdered Ranch Dressing mix using a pizza shaker Either that or simply some MOJO Criollo, which is in the DR.. That's Oregano/Garlic in a bitter citrus base.

    La Sirena have it, it's just called Creole seasoning and you'll find it close to all the spices.

    In the USA, "Creole" means southern Louisiana "Cajun" seasoning.
    Dominican "Sazon" will be just fine!
    I always wanted to "Deep Fry" a turkey!
    Be sure it is completely thawed out, and wiped dry on the outside, before you SLOWLY lower it into the fat.
    In the USA, there are more "House Fires" on Thanksgiving than any other days.
    Keep away from anything that can burn, and outside, of course!

    Pretty big difference between Creole seasoning and Old Bay.
    Like Chris said, just use the Sazon and it will be fanfekkingtastic!

    Creole is Cajun and is spicy. I have seen it at Nacional. You can also buy a liquid for direct injection, but probably not here. Annd, I believe you should only use peanut oil for frying a turkey.

    I got an indoor fryer thats much safer than some of these outdoor do-it-yourself contraptions. Just gotta make sure there its completely thawed out and will use on patio so that the smells dont kill everyone in the house.
