Razzoo's Stuffed Shrimp
- 24 large or jumbo shrimp
- 1 lb. lump crabmeat
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup green bell pepper diced
- ¼ cup red bell pepper diced
- ½ cup onion diced
- 12 snack crackers grinded
- ½ cup breadcrumbs

Set a non-stick pan on medium to high heat and melt the butter. Add green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and onion then cook for around 3 minutes. Set it aside to allow it to cool down.
Separate the crabmeat from the shell then put it into a bowl. Add egg, crushed snack crackers, breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper, lemon zest, and Old Bay seasoning. Mix gently.
Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for as long as needed.
Clean the shrimp by peeling the skin off but without removing the tail. Cut deeper along the deveining line and remove the veins.
Lay a parchment paper on a baking tray and set the shrimp side down like a butterfly. Press the shrimp to make it flatter.
Take 1 tablespoon of the crab mixture and shape it into a ball, then set it on top of the shrimp. Secure it by pushing the tail into its top.
Repeat until all the shrimps are stuffed.
Drip melted butter on top of the shrimp then bake the Razzoo's stuffed shrimp for 15 minutes in a 350ºF oven.
