great grub 28

I'm on a roll with the I-haven't-talked-about-this-in-a-while posts (there go those dashes again!) so I thought I'd keep it going with another great grub. This is an old recipe passed down from my grandmother (Grammy). Actually it was started by her friend, who we called Flo. Anyway, that is enough random info about this delicious recipe. I will warn you, this is a labor intensive process. It isn't hard work, but it takes a long time. I PROMISE it is worth it!

Grammy's (Flo's) Baked Stuffed Shrimp

- 1 lb. uncooked shrimp
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp. paprika

- 1 (or 2) cans crab meat
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
- 1 tsp. mustard
- 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 2 slices bread (crust removed and cubed)

- 1 medium onion, minced
- 1/2 bell pepper, minced
- 2 tbsp. butter

Peel uncooked shrimp, leaving tail on. Split shrimp butterfly fashion. Combine bread crumbs and paprika. Dip in milk and egg, then in crumb mixture.

Mix crab meat, Worcesterhire sauce, salt, pepper, Tobasco, mustard, mayo, and bread crumbs.

Saute onion and green pepper in butter. Add to crab meat mixture. Stuff shrimp, tail-side up. Place on a greased baking pan or cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees until browned, 15-20 minutes.


ps - I can't believe I just made these and forgot to take a I stole one of the internet that looks veeeery similar. Don't tell on me.


  1. Sounds fabulous, but I'm not one to try recipes that have the "labor intensive" warning up front! I do dearly love seafood, though...

    Your secret thieving ways are safe with me. ;o)

  2. Yummy. If they didn't cost so much to make I would do them for Bunco night.... but I am not made of money! Charlie will LOVE them!

    I'm so telling ;-)

  3. Hard to go wrong with shrimp and crab meat!!!!Looks great.
