Crab Stuffed Shrimp

A good friend was at the beach recently and was posting pictures of beautiful food. I saw the stuffed shrimp and was envious, so I decided to make my own. I made my trip to Crosby’s Crabs and got my seafood and then went about working on the recipe. Now, followers of this blog know I have done stuffed fish before and if I said it a thousand times, don’t repeat yourself. I used Panko bread crumbs for more body with a lot of herbs. The wine and the fresh lemon juice liven it up, and the rice flour and corn meal bring texture to the shrimp. I used some blue sweet potatoes for something different as a side; I’ll post that recipe in a few days. I hope you like it.
