zucchini, halved lengthwise

1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons

My husband loves zucchini and always wants more, since I don't care for it too much I was looking for a compromise. This recipe pleased both of us. I used canned crab ( more affordable) and frozen pre-cooked shrimp and the taste was still great. The only change I made was to put the stuffed zucchini in a glass dish and put a few tablespoons of water on the bottom. If the water evaporated I would add a little more. It keeps the food moist. We loved the flavor and how crisp the zucchini stayed. This is a keeper and will be a summer favorite.
I pretty much followed the directions on this, except that quantities were based on purchased size at the store (Crabmeat Qty a little less, Shrimp a little more). I wasn't thrilled with the result. It was bland, and I felt it was missing something. The zucchini itself came out fine. I used the recommendation of putting water in the bottom of the pan while cooking in the oven. I probably won't try this one again.
This was very good! I have to admit, I'm getting tired of all of these reviews where people say "I used (blank) because it's all I had on hand." These are recipes and I rely on the reviews to know how they taste - not what you had on hand and how THAT tasted! Am I the only one that actually GOES to the store to buy the necessary ingredients to make a recipe??? There was nothing wrong with the way this recipe was written ...and yes, I followed the recipe and bought ALL necessary ingredients. Please just add this recipe to your circulation and buy all the ingredients and follow the recipe because you will find that this dish is really very good...just as written! Thank you Bill Pollackov for posting such a yummy recipe that my whole family loved!
What an amazing dish! I would add more garlic in with the bread crumbs and a little cayan pepper for a little kick. I also added fresh parmasean to top them off. My guests couldn't stop raving over how wonderful this meal was!
I made this a long time ago and have not been able to find the recipe . Thanks for putting it on the web...
This was very good! The only changes I made were to add 1/2 cup scallops and I used monteray pepper jack cheese b/c thats what I had. I will make this again. Thanks!
I followed the recipe but I did add a little water to the baking sheet as other reviewers suggested. I also used one large zucchini instead of four smaller ones and added diced mushrooms. I did wonder about the lack of salt, but it was great without it. My husband loved this recipe and we will have it again.
Very good recipe when you've got too many zicchini in the fridge. The only change I would make is cut the amount of garlic and oregano in half. All the spices kind of overwhelmed the seafood.
