Dinner for two
- 6 colossal shrimp (8-12 count)
- 6 oz. can lump crab meat (I used Bumble Bee)
- 4 tbsp. butter, divided use
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 1/2 cup gluten free cracker crumbs (about 10 crackers)
- cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 400º. Mist a baking dish with cooking spray. Melt butter in a small saucepan and set aside.
Combine the crab meat, garlic powder, Old Bay, and cracker crumbs with 2 tbsp. of butter in a small bowl.
Rinse the shrimp under cold water and remove the shells. Drain and pat dry.
Lay each shrimp on its side, and run a paring knife along the backside, be careful not to cut all the way through. Open the shrimp and lay on a clean plate or cutting board.
Remove the dark vein running down the center of the shrimp.
Mound the crab stuffing onto each shrimp.
Arrange the shrimp in the baking dish and drizzle the remaining 2 tbsp. butter over the top. Sprinkle with more Old Bay seasoning.
Bake for 15 minutes and serve. This is a filling entrée! Three shrimp each with a side salad and rice would make a wonderful meal.
Notes ♪♫ For a hearty dinner size portion, choose colossal shrimp (8-12 count). I always look for sales in the frozen section and stock up when I can. Thaw in the refrigerator and rinse under cold water to remove the shells.
