prep: 30 mins cook: 15 mins total: 45 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


¼ cup white cooking wine

5 saltine crackers, crushed

cooking spray

2 (4 ounce) packages crushed buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®)

½ cup chopped imitation crabmeat

½ teaspoon celery salt

1 clove minced garlic

½ cup parsley

¼ cup butter, melted

4 sea scallops, chopped

20 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Mix crushed round crackers, parsley, saltines, celery salt, and garlic together in a large bowl. Add scallops, crabmeat, melted butter, and cooking wine; mix stuffing well.

Place a shrimp on a flat work surface. Slice horizontally through the middle, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like an open book. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

Stuff each shrimp with a heaping tablespoon of stuffing and place back-side up in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining shrimp and stuffing. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons water to the bottom of the baking dish to keep shrimp moist during baking.

Bake in the preheated oven until shrimp are opaque and stuffing is beginning to brown, 15 to 18 minutes.
