Here is a super simple recipe that I made for the New Year...
Baked Stuffed Shrimp
12 Jumbo Shrimp
1 can minced clams
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 stick butter, melted
few dashes of crushed red pepper
dash of salt
unflavored bread crumbs
Heat oven to 350'
Spray or grease a 12 spot muffin tin.
Peel shrimp leaving the tail in tact. Slit the underside so that the shrimp "sits-up".
Place one shrimp in each muffin cup.
Combine butter, crackers, can of clams (including the juice), crushed red pepper, and salt. If mixture seems too wet, add enough bread crumbs to firm it up. Place a heaping tablespoon of stuffing on top of each shrimp. Bake for approximately 20 - 30 minutes (or until shrimp is bright pink and stuffing is golden brown.) Enjoy!!
Serve as an appetizer or with mashed potatoes and steamed greens for a quick, elegant meal.
