"This is a recipe for shrimp with a seasoned bread stuffing. I love to serve this dish when I have guests for dinner because I can prepare the shrimp early in the day. I've always received rave reviews over this recipe and have shared it often. You may add diced lobster or scallops to the cracker mixture just before baking. Serve with drawn butter." — LRW1

unsalted soda crackers, crushed
fresh bread crumbs
ground black pepper
grated Parmesan cheese
dry white wine
shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails
I didn't use any crackers but processed fresh bread crumbs from an herb bread that I made several days ago. I also sauteed minced onion and red pepper in butter and then added the crumbs to toast them a bit. For some extra added goodness I added crab meat to the mixture and made a roasted garlic and butter sauce to spoon over the top. Yum!
Adding more flavor to the stuffing would help. Crabmeat (usually in seafood stuffings), garlic, seasoned bread crumbs, etc, makes a big difference. When "stuffing" the shrimp curl the tail down into the stuffing so it holds it in place. Also...drizzle with butter and you will get a tastier and more attractive shrimp. We served ours with home-made hollandaise and everyone loved it. A very simple recipe!
This is a great recipe! A fast and easy way to dress up prawns. I found that it was easier for me to layer the prawns in the pan, and top them with the crumb mixture....I'm sure that wouldn't work so good for dipping them after, but is great as a dinner main dish. Thank you for offering it:)
This was great. I used a lot of ritz crackers, and
not as much bread crumbs. After I made the stuffing, I drizzed a mixture of melted butter
and white wine over it.
I made this dish one afternoon for myself and happened to have quite a bit of shrimp. All of a sudden my sister showed up unexpecteldly with a friend. They are still calling me to tell me how much they enjoyed it. They could not believe this was the first time I had prepared the dish. I must admit I added a small onion, mayonaise and McCormic Season All. I wanted to add celery but I forgot to buy some.
I tried this recipe and it was the most disgusting dinner I think I have ever made. I took one bite and threw it all away. I ended up microwaving frozen pizza.
This recipe was very easy to make. It tasted good but the shrimp were a little dry. (Maybe it was just my oven.) Next time I make it I will drizzle a small amount of melted butter over the shrimp before I place it in the oven. Otherwise, I enjoyed making and eating this seafood treat.
I loved this meal!!!! I felt so proud to have made it. It was definitely a new level of cooking for me, yet was so easy. However, I had difficulty putting the filling in the tiny shrimp. But don't let that scare you away from this recipe. I just pressed it down firmly with my hands and tried to prop them up in the pan so not everything would fall out. And it worked!!! I served it with cocktail sauce and store-bought crabcakes and rice. It was a hit with my husband! We felt like we were at a real seafood restaurant. Can't wait to make again!
