2With a sharp knife, carefully “butterfly” the shrimp, removing the black “vein” and taking care not to cut through the shell. Place on paper-towel covered platter.

3Drain crabmeat in colander, sift through meat and remove any bits of shells. Set aside.

4In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, dried parsley and garlic powder until thoroughly blended.

5Gently fold crabmeat into mayo mixture.

6Using a melon baller or a tablespoon, generously “fill” each of the butterflied shrimp with the crab mixture

7Take a slice of the bacon and carefully “wrap” it around each stuffed shrimp, making sure it’s covered from end to end

8Arrange shrimp on the wire-racked pan and place in oven until cooked through, approximately 20 minutes.

9Remove pan from over and drizzle maple praline syrup lightly over the cooked shrimp

10Turn oven setting to broil and place shrimp back in the oven for another 5 minutes or until bacon has crisped.
