    Dedee Royale's Note:

    Growing up in the Boston area, a Saturday night favorite at restaurants was Baked Stuffed Shrimp. This dish is light and delicious and the trick is to bake the shrimp in a glass pie dish, not on a dark cookie sheet -they come out much more juicy. Also, I added a little Marsala for sweetness - but I guess Sherry would do. Be sure to use only Ritz brand crackers and not the low fat variety or the taste will be greatly compromised.

      These stuffed shrimp are truly superior. I followed the recipe exactly as posted, except I sprinkled a little fresh-squeezed lemon juice over the shrimp before baking. Butterflying the shrimp was a little time-consuming (I had 38 shrimp in all to do) but the rest of the recipe went fairly quickly. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
