DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Place the crabmeat in a large bowl and season with the Cajun Seasoning, Old Bay or salt and pepper, (your choice).
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In your fry pan, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers and cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the parsley and the garlic, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Add the cooled vegetables to the crabmeat and toss to combine.
  • Add the mayonnaise, egg, lemon juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce and stir gently.
  • Add 1 cup of cracker crumbs, salt and pepper to taste, and stir gently, being careful not to break up the crabmeat.
  • Spoon the crabmeat stuffing evenly into each shrimp (about 2 Tbsp), and place, stuffed sides up, in your baking dish.
  • Drizzle with the remaining melted butter.
  • Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.
