DIRECTIONS

  • FOR THE SHRIMP:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and sauté the green onions, green pepper, and garlic powder until the pepper is limp. Place in a mixing bowl and add the cream, mustard, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  • Add the cracker crumbs, mayonnaise, egg, parsley, and lemon juice. Mix well. Gently fold in the crabmeat.
  • Split the shrimp down the bottom center to the tail, being careful not to cut through the back. Stuff each shrimp with a small mound of the crabmeat mixture. Wrap the shrimp in bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place the shrimp on a baking sheet and cook in the top third of the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through. Turn the oven to broil and broil for 4 minutes to crisp the bacon.
  • WHILE THE SHRIMP COOKS: BASIL CREAM SAUCE.
  • Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook until light brown, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and reduce the sauce by half. Add the cream and bouillon and reduce by half again. Add the pesto, bring to a simmer, and heat until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • To serve, arrange 4 shrimp on a plate and drizzle with Basil Sauce.
