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!

    This was absolutely outstanding. The best baked stuffed shrimp ever. I used stove top reduced sodium chicken flavor. I bet the the stuffing mix would be great with scallops. 👍

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Wow Debbie, what a fabulous review! Thank you so much for the feedback!

    • Maureen Terry

    Awesome recipe!!! So easy & very delicious!!! I definitely will make this again.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Wonderful, Maureen!

    I made this today and I think the stuffing should be cooked first, it would have been better – I don’t like the hard crunch, otherwise with a few added spices, it was good. Thanks for the idea and 20 minutes was good.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Jtk, the stuffing shouldn’t be crunchy once baked, but if you experienced crunchiness could it have been broiling the tops? Good to know it was good though!

    • jtk

    Isn’t 20 min too long to cook the shrimp – won’t they be over cooked and hard? Shrimp only take a few minutes in a frying pan.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Jtk, I didn’t find it overbaked. You need time for the stuffing to cook through and if you are using large shrimp it should be ok.

    • Christie

    What kind of chicken stuffing mix?
    Like “Stovetop”?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Christie, yes the stovetop kind!

    I have shell fish allergies, so I will never be able to enjoy this. But my wife and kids love seafood, so I’ll make this for them. From what I read it looks simple enough to make.

    • MaryLou

    I used to make it with crab meat stuffing but is very expensive. This stuffing is delicious and affordable. My family love it! With the extra stuffing you can make appetizers rolling bacon around some of the stuffing secured with a toothpick and baked for 15” at 400.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Thank you for the input, Mary Lou! Chicken Stuffing makes an awesome alternative in that case!

    • Tina D

    HELP…I’m giving 4 stars because I didnt eat it yet. What can I do with left over stuffing i dont have to many people to feed?? I hate to waste it

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Tina, there shouldn’t be stuffing leftovers but if you used smaller shrimps you can store the leftovers and use for another batch of shrimps. Also, fill each shrimp with a heaping spoon as the filling is supposed to heap out of each shrimp.
