Baked Stuffed Shrimp

I always include this dish on my Christmas Eve buffet.  The shrimp with the stuffing are savory and delicious.  The same stuffing recipe can be used to top scallops.  Serve with lemon wedges and enjoy!


20 Large Shrimp, Washed and Deveined

1 Cup Ritz Crackers, Crushed

1 Cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs

¾ Cup Melted Butter

1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

3 Garlic Cloves, Minced

2 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley, Chopped

½ Tsp. Salt

½ Tsp. Pepper

Lemon Wedges (Garnish)



Split the shrimp, butterfly style, leaving the shell on the tail only.  Place the shrimp in a buttered baking dish.  Combine the remaining ingredients to make the stuffing.  Mound the stuffing mixture over the center of each shrimp.  Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for approx. 10-12 minutes, or until shrimp are baked through and red in color.  Garnish with lemon wedges if desired.
