Ingredients
  Shrimp 16 Large
  White crab meat 1⁄2 Pound
  Shrimp fry 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Plain bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 3
  Cajun trinity 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 2 Tablespoon
  Worcestershire sauce 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Tabasco sauce 1 Dash
  Oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Lemon 1
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

The Crab Stuffing
With a tablespoon of butter, sauté the 1 cup Cajun Trinity and minced garlic. Pour into a medium size mixing bowl. Add the Worcestershire sauce, Tony’s Creole Seasoning, yellow mustard, parsley flakes, and one egg. Fold in the breadcrumbs and crabmeat. Mix well. Form the mixture in small meatball sized balls. Place on a platter. Refrigerate for approximately one hour to chill and become firm.
The Shrimp
Peel, clean and de-vein the shrimp. Leave the tails on. Carefully make a deep cut in the shrimp to butterfly it open.
Prepare your egg wash by mixing 1-2 eggs with a ¼ cup or so of milk and squeeze in some lime or lemon juice. Prepare the Shrimp/Fish Fry by mixing in ½ teaspoon seal salt and 2 tablespoons Tony’s Creole seasoning.
Place a crab ball on the open shrimp. Press firmly. Dip in egg wash. Shake off excess. Place in the Shrimp/Fish Fry mixture and toss around to coat. Place on a platter.
The Frying
Heat your oil. Do not put drops of water in the hot oil to see if it’s hot enough like Mike Stokes does! Carefully place 2-3 shrimp in the fryer (depends on what size fryer you have). Fry the shrimp until golden brown. Remove to a platter lined with an ample amount of paper towels.

I never tried stuffed shrimp before... interesting, though a bit tricky as shrimps are so small, they are tough to handle.. I will swap the crab meat with something else though

Buy the large U-6-12 a pound shrimp, butterfly IE slit down but not all the way and you can easily stuff and mound with crab or other mixtures. Stuffed shrimp is wonderful. I love the fresh water prawns from Kalkutta so much this way. They are so sweet and like eating lobster!
