Gullah is the name for the African-American cuisine and culture of the Carolina Low Country—the region in and around Charleston and the coastal islands. Traditional Gullah cooking uses a special spice blend, similar to Cajun seasoning. It can also be used to season meat, fish, or omelets. Try this one for fried dishes or use the regular version.
