These Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp are so easy to prepare and taste incredibly delicious! 

I was inspired to recreate this dish after trying Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp at my husbands Christmas work party in a fancy restaurant. They happened to serve this with baby potatoes as the main course and I was so intrigued by the appearance and taste… My mother and sister who were over when I first tried attempting these shrimp, sure did approve that it’s tasty. If you have never made stuffed shrimp you really need to try this!

    I wonder how it would turn out if; you laid a half slice of bacon in the palm of your hand, placed the butterflied shrimp on top of the bacon, stuffed the shrimp as directed, wrapped the bacon around the stuffed shrimp and cooked it until the bacon was fairly crispy. Do you think it would turn out good or would the bacon burn before the 20-25 minutes cooking time was completed?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      That’s actually a really good idea, Gary! A 20 minute mark for bacon is ideal so I don’t think they’ll burn.

    • Camille Turner

    do you prepare the stuffing mix from the box first ?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      No prepping stuffing mix, Camille. Everything gets mixed uncooked and bakes.

    Sorry to correct your spelling BUT I grew up in Worcester, MA. Everyone has a problem spelling Worcester.
    Anyway, spelling it the right way…….WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE. It’s one word I always spell right. LOL

    • Steve

    Tried this recipe and was.not only easy but delicious, thanks

      • Alex

      You’re welcome, Steve. Thanks for the feedback!

    • BOB WERNER

    This was very good. Made exactly as written, less the salt.
    Used 16/20 count shrimp. Bigger would be better. Cooked 25 minutes.
    Also, used an entire 6oz box of Stove Top stuffing, which is just over two cups.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Thank you for your feedback, Bob. It’s nice to hear it turned out very good for you!

      • Georgina

      Sounds delish. I have the shrimp and stove top mix. Will try tonight. I have a question. Should the mix be made before stirring in mayo?

        • Alex

        Let me know how the stuffed shrimp turn out for you and, you would mix the mayo with the stuffing mix as directed.

          • Joe

          Not clear, are we starting with dry stuffing or the prepared stuffing mix as directed on the box. Joe

            • Alyona’s Cooking

            Hi Joe, it would be the un-prepared stuffing mix.

      • Bob S.

      Thank you for your recipe, I’m trying it out tonight. My family has been making stuffed baked jumbo shrimp on xmas eve for years. The recipe we use, calls for Progresso Italian style bread crumbs mixed with drained chopped clams and just enough melted butter to bind the stuffing together. Some years, the stuffing was overly rich, when the cook used too much of a heavy hand on the butter. Otherwise, it was always a treat

        • Alyona’s Cooking

        You are welcome, let me know how this version turns out for you.

      • Kathy

      This is going to be a silly question… Do I prepare the stuffing following the directions on the box first? Then add that already made stuffing with the mayo etc? Thanks, k

        • Alyona’s Cooking

        You won’t need to prepare the stuffing as directed on the box.

      • heather

      CAN YOU FREEZE THIS AFTER COOKING?

        • Alyona’s Cooking

        I’m not sure how the stuffing will hold up once cooked and defrosted but perhaps freezing prior to baking would be a better option…

      • Shay

      Made this for dinner tonight everyone loved it.

        • Alyona’s Cooking

        Thanks for the feedback, Shay
