This appetizer is perfect for a big dinner party or just a romantic dinner for two on date night.As most of Y’all know, I’m back in the Sunshine State again with an abundance of deliciously fresh seafood surrounding me. I am excited to be back at home, where I can be a little more creative with recipes.

It sure has been a long year of cooking on the fly in Mississippi and hoping for the best when it comes to the lighting or the ability to get in the kitchen when I want to conjure up one of my favorite recipes to share with Y’all.

It’s a recipe that one of my dearest friends Fran made. Fran was always cooking up a storm in her kitchen, and I loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, my best friend passed away last January 20th, 2017. I will always remember her humor and delicious tasting food.

    That is quite funny that you say you are increasing portions every time… I do the same thing in hopes of some leftovers, but for some reason, I never have any. Any ideas why? 🙂 I just have a feeling it is exactly what will happen with this jumbo crab-stuffed shrimp.!

    I’m afraid if I made these delicious shrimp for a party, I would never take them to the party! I would eat them all myself!
