Stuffed Shrimp

The theme for this month’s Creative Cooking Crew challenge, hosted  Joan of Foodalogue and Lazaro of Lazaro Cooks, “stuff it”. Immediately Stuffed Shrimp came to mind. I love to combine seafood and stuffing jumbo Louisiana shrimp with sweet Louisiana blue crab makes a delicious pair.
