Husband LOVES salty snacks so I wasn’t surprised when he gave this recipe his approval. It’s a twist on traditional party mix using fishy crackers, oyster crackers and Old Bay seasoning (among other ingredients). It’s a salty, crunchy and slightly spicy snack that is a cinch to throw together. I substituted pretzel sticks for the pretzel fish and wheat “snack stix” for the melba toast rounds. Old Bay seasoning contains a boat-load of salt so I recommend adding it to taste. Stir about half the amount into the party mix then taste it. You may find that you don’t need the whole tablespoon of Old Bay.
