Baked Cheese Stuffed Prawns

    1 hour 5 minutes

    Stuffed prawns is an easy dish even though the stuffing process can take some time. I like to cook them as an entree for a dinner party or sometimes as a finger food.

    Adding more flavor to the stuffing would help. Crabmeat (usually in seafood stuffings), garlic, seasoned bread crumbs, etc, makes a big difference. When "stuffing" the shrimp curl the tail down into the stuffing so it holds it in place. Also...drizzle with butter and you will get a tastier and more attractive shrimp. We served ours with home-made hollandaise and everyone loved it. A very simple recipe!  -  13 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't use any crackers but processed fresh bread crumbs from an herb bread that I made several days ago. I also sauteed minced onion and red pepper in butter and then added the crumbs to toast them a bit. For some extra added goodness I added crab meat to the mixture and made a roasted garlic and butter sauce to spoon over the top. Yum!  -  30 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great recipe! A fast and easy way to dress up prawns. I found that it was easier for me to layer the prawns in the pan, and top them with the crumb mixture....I'm sure that wouldn't work so good for dipping them after, but is great as a dinner main dish. Thank you for offering it  -  20 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
