Crab stuffed shrimp ..... with a twist

Pam and I were making crab rangoons today to freeze for later use .....



when I decided that I would like to use the crab mixture for the rangoons as stuffing for shrimp.  Before, I'd just put only crab on the shrimp, but the rangoon mixture had ginger, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, chili pepper sauce, green onions, Old Bay Seasoning, and lemon juice in it, so I thought that might spice it up.  I was right.



Served it with spinach souffle and tater tots.  Grif cooked some tots the other night, and I have yearned for them ever since.


The stuffed shrimp was excellent.  I will spice up the crab from now on.

    2 teaspoon Lemon juice

    4 Green onions , Sliced paper thin

    Pepper  , to taste

    1.5 teaspoons Chili pepper sauce

    2. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for 4 hours to let flavors combine.

    What kind of crab meat do you use VI?  Living in landlocked midwest my access to seafood is minimal and expensive for what I have access to.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season. 
  • Scott,
    I usually buy lump crab in a 1 pound plastic container at Costco.

    That's called rumaki.  I made some with the leftover shrimp, using cream cheese and diced pickled jalapeños.  I'm freezing it, waiting for my next shrimp withdrawals.  I'll serve it with homemade Szechuan sauce.

    The rangoon paste holds to the shrimp quite nicely, and I'm afraid the flavoring might be lost with the addition of bacon.  Just my personal opinion.
