Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter, plus 6 tablespoons melted butter
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
1 pound crab meat, flaked
½ cup dry sherry
1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
3 scallions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
½ teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

20 large shrimp, peeled, deveined, butterflied
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Heat the 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms and cook until all of the liquid evaporates. Stir in the crab meat, sherry, egg, scallions, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, and breadcrumbs; cover and steam 2 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and add just enough whipping cream to bind the mixture.

  4. Place shrimp on a large working surface; stuff each shrimp with a portion of the crab meat mixture.

  5. Arrange the shrimp stuffed side up in a baking dish. Drizzle with the 6 tablespoons of melted butter, then sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for 15 minutes.

Serve these delicate party pleasers with a classy white wine, such as Champagne, White Zinfandel, or Pouilly-Fume.

This recipe is delicious... the 2nd time I tried it I used some crushed ritz crackers instead of the breadcrumbs... another hit!
