This is absolutely sinful! I apologize for not being able to give exact amounts but the chef who shared this with me gave me just approximates.


  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp
  • 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs, fresh-white
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • several dashes salt
  • several dashes pepper
  • 1 can real crab meat
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


Use size U-12 raw green shrimp (12 to a pound). Remove legs and shell except for the shell on the tail. Take vein running down back out. Cut underside of shrimp and flatten out (do not cut all the way through. Basically you are butterflying them. Make stuffing with the rest of the ingredients.

***** It is important to note that in this recipe all the amounts for the stuffing are approximates. Use more or less according to taste. The melted butter should just be used to hold the stuffing together.

Press the stuffing onto flattened shrimp and bake in a 500 degree oven for 7-12 minutes.

****Whole can of crab might be too much so again use according to what you want. Also crab should be shredded before mixing into stuffing.

Serve stuffed and baked shrimp with melted butter.
