Maine Baked Stuffed Shrimp

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

You are probably thinking, "How in the world can you stuff a Maine shrimp?" Actually, you can't stuff them like you stuff the big ones. Maine shrimp are small, tender, and sweet, and they are delicious cooked this way. The stuffing is on top.

This was a great recipe! thank you!. My husband and made this with raw maine shrimp and it needed to cook a little longer. Also, when we make it again (tonight) I will use less butter. This is really rich and I think it could feed at least three people, possibly four. Thank you for sharing it.
