    Pot Scrubber's Note:

    Use for stuffing shrimp or mussels. It would also make a very good stuffed flounder. I LOVE this recipe and I am proud of it! I made it up all by myself and it took me two years to perfect it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large green onion, white and green part minced and chopped
    • 2 tablespoons roasted red peppers (or jarred minced pimentos)
    • 1/2 lb crabmeat (I always use vacuum packed packaged and press it dry through a mesh strainer)
    • 2/3 cup fresh breadcrumb (about 2 slices of white bread processed in your food processor)
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
    • 1/3 cup mayonnaise (Hellman's or Best brand)
    • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley (minced very finely)
    • paprika, for lightly sprinkling


    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
    2. 2
      For stuffed shrimp -- butterfly them and put one tbsp of mixture on top and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Use the biggest shrimp you can find!
    3. 3
      For mussels -- place one tbsp of mixture on top of mussels and bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. (I buy a two pound frozen bag of New Zealand Mussels on the half shell from Fiesta Market. Just thaw -- top with some stuffing mixture and bake. Delicious!).
    4. 4
      Makes enough for generously stuffing 20 large shrimp or 2 lbs of mussels on the half shell.
    5. 5
      Sometimes I will drizzle melted butter over each stuffed mussel or shrimp but do so very very lightly. I will melt butter in the micro and then using a 1/8 tsp measuring spoon pour on each shrimp/mussel. Too much butter and it will become too rich.
    6. 6
      Lightly sprinkle paprika over all.
    7. 7
      I love this.

      This is terrific! I prepared this and stuffed mushrooms with it for a family gathering of about 6 adults and 8 kids. I doubled the receipe and stuffed about 30 medium mushrooms with it. My husband laughed and said that many would never get ate with all the other food I had prepared. They were all ate and they were asking for more!! Now instead of cakes and pies I am asked to bring stuffed mushrooms instead. Great job on putting this one together. Your hard work is being enjoyed by dozens in my family alone.

      Not being a crab fan, I had to enlist several taster's. Everyone agreed this was wonderful. Cold or hot it was great. The only change I made was to add 1/2 cup of pimento spread. It added a little more substance and color. I stuffed mushrooms with half and heated the rest to serve as a hot dip. Both were excellent! The only real challenge was finding crab meat at 10:00pm, the night before Thanksgiving. Finally ended up with lump crab in the can, which was even on sale. I will definately be repeating this on NewYear's Eve.
