Step-by-Step

  • 1Rinse shrimp lightly under cold water and pat dry
  • 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.

  • 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.
