Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse shrimp lightly under cold water and pat dry

In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, dried parsley and garlic powder until thoroughly blended.
5
Gently fold crabmeat into mayo mixture.
6
Using a melon baller or a tablespoon, generously “fill” each of the butterflied shrimp with the crab mixture
7
Take a slice of the bacon and carefully “wrap” it around each stuffed shrimp, making sure it’s covered from end to end
8
Arrange shrimp on the wire-racked pan and place in oven until cooked through, approximately 20 minutes.
9
Remove pan from over and drizzle maple praline syrup lightly over the cooked shrimp
10
Turn oven setting to broil and place shrimp back in the oven for another 5 minutes or until bacon has crisped.
