I'm breaking a long standing rule - I'm posting a cook I've done before.  Except, this time, I'm using a different recipe that I think is fantastic !!!!
I thought it was so good, I used it in ABT's and they were great too.

Recipe at the end.

Assembled in the kitchen

Plated with spinach souffle and rice pilaf.




12  Shrimp, jumbo, peeled, deveined, butterflied

1 tablespoon Butter

1/2 medium Onion , finely chopped

1/2 medium Green pepper, chopped

1/2 cup Celery, finely chopped

1 pound Crab meat, lump, shell removed

3/4 cup Saltine crackers, finely crushed

1/2 cup Mayonaise

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Lemon juice, fresh

1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

    You're doing it right VI!

    That's getting close to crabcake-stuffed shrimp. I'm digging the crab mixture.

    As always a great dish and fantastic presentation.  Did something similar recently and wrapped the shrimp and crab in bacon.  Keep on wokking OOPs wrong thread!

    Wonderful. SmokingDawg has a good point. With all the new memebers we have been getting, there are many people out there who haven't see your great cooks.

    That looks and sounds amazing, thanks for the recipe.  Most of your photos look like they could be in one of my Bon Appetite magazines!
