How To Make bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp w/praline drizzle

  • 1
    Rinse shrimp lightly under cold water and pat dry
  • 2
    With 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.
  • 3
    Drain crabmeat in colander, sift through meat and remove any bits of shells. Set aside.
  • 4
    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.
