    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.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      In a small skillet, heat 1 tablespoons butter and saute the celery and garlic for 3-4 minutes on low heat. Do not brown.
    3. 3
      Transfer to a small bowl.
    4. 4
      Crush the crackers with your hands in a plastic bag until just coarse and add to the bowl with the celery.
    5. 5
      Stir in the melted butter, lemon juice, parsley, wine or chicken broth and ground pepper.
    6. 6
      The mixture should be barely wet, enough to hold together. But if too wet add more Ritz crackers, or if too dry add a little more broth.
    7. 7
      Cut almost through the center of each shrimp and flatten out cut side up, pointing the tail section up.
    8. 8
      Spray a glass pie dish with butter spray before placing shrimp on it. Then spray each shrimp with butter spray.
    9. 9
      With your hands mound some of the stuffing and place it on each shrimp.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle with just a little bit of paprika, Don't overdo it.

      Bake at 375F for 12 minutes, then place under broiler for 1 minute to brown top lightly.
    12. 12
      Serve with lemon wedges.

      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.
