Drain thoroughly.

  3. Stuff each shell with some of the seafood mixture, and place into a serving dish. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Everyone raved over this recipe and wanted a copy of it. I would recommend perhaps a sauce for over it, as the recipe does not have one. I whipped up a Parmesan sauce that went great with the shells.

With the cup of mayo, I added about 10oz fresh crab meat from the grocery store and a 8oz bag of cooked "salad shrimp" (thawed), onion, cheese, and little bit of old bay seasoning. VERY TASTY! However, even with the increased meat, i feel it still could've used a little less mayo. I actually placed the seafood mix in a dish and into the oven to warm it up prior to stuffing the shells... Also, as suggested by another review, I lightly topped the shells with a warm parmesan sauce (bar of cream cheese, 1/2c parm cheese, 3/4c milk, dash of pepper & nutmeg- microwaved in a bowl for 7-8 min until creamy). This dish was a nice accent to our steamed zucchini... THANKS!

This was not very good. It was the only dish on our menu that was untouched for the most part. I think it is the mayo/miracle whip... and the celery added a strange flavor that didn't make sense to me. I wouldn't make this again.
