How to Make Crab-Topped Shrimp


  1. Thaw large shrimp, if fozen.
  2. To shell fresh or thawed shrimp, open each shell lengthwise down the body.
  3. Hold the shrimp in one hand and carefully peel back the shell starting with the head end.
  4. Gently pull on the tail portion of the shell to remove the entire shell.
  5. Butterfly shrimp by cutting down the back almost but not all the way through; remove vein.
  6. Repeat with remaining shrimp and set aside.
  7. In a small nonmetal bowl, micro-cook sliced green onion and the butter or margarine, uncovered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until the green onion is tender.
  8. Stir in lemon juice and bottled hot pepper sauce.
  9. Toss with the flaked crab meat and fine dry bread crumbs.
  10. Spread shrimp open and place, cut side up, in two 10-ounce oval casseroles.
  11. Cover with vented clear plastic wrap.
  12. Micro-cook, covered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 minutes, rotating the casseroles a half-turn once.
  13. Drain off liquid and rearrange shrimp, placing the least-cooked portions to the outside of the casseroles.
  14. Spoon crab mixture over shrimp.
  15. Micro-cook, covered, on 100% power about 2 1/2 minutes or until shrimp are done and crab mixture is heated through, rotating the casseroles a half-turn once.
