Helpful hints

  • Use fresh or frozen deveined, shelled shrimp with tails on to make this recipe extra quick. (16 to 20 per pound).
  • For a fancier presentation you can butterfly the shrimp, flatten and stuff then secure tail on top of stuffing with a toothpick.
  • For a lower protein diet decrease serving size to 2 shrimp (18 grams protein) or the amount that matches your meal plan.
  • One jumbo shrimp is about 1 to 1-1/2 ounces, headless and with shell. You can substitute 16 large shrimp and increase serving size to 4 pieces.
  • If fresh crab is unavailable, buy the lowest sodium frozen or canned crab.

These are awesome!! I wish I could eat more of them! I used large shrimp so I could have 4. Served it with rice and roasted veggies and it was a nice filling meal that I will make again.

This shrimp dish was delicious. I wish I could have eaten more. My husband, who is not on this diet, thought the stuffing was great!
