Recipe by Lester_C

I found this recipe from a "Women's World" magazine. You could use this stuffing for any seafood you like, but it works great with shrimp. It's very easy to make, and is definitely a hit.

Excellent recipe! I cut everything in half and kept the breadcrumbs at a half cup because my husband likes the bread! It was GREAT! Thanks for sharing!
