For the Shrimp:

  • 12 jumbo shrimp

  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

For the Stuffing:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 12 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs, or cracker crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley

    Steps to Make It

    Prepare the Shrimp

  • Gather the ingredients.

  • To shell the shrimp, use a small sharp knife to slice through the shell of each shrimp along the length of the outside curve.

  • Peel off the entire shell except for the tail portion of each shrimp.

  • To devein the shrimp, use the tip of the knife to pull out the dark vein that runs down the outside of the shrimp. Discard the veins and shells.

  • Place the shrimp on a cutting board and make another cut along the inside curve of the shrimp, cutting almost all the way through.

  • Rinse the shrimp under cold running water and drain.

  • In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, parsley, and ginger.

  • Pour half of the mixture into a shallow dish, add the shrimp, and toss to coat.

  • Cover and let the shrimp marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Reserve the remaining lemon juice mixture.

Make the Stuffing

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat.

  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until it just begins to turn golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. Add the breadcrumbs and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes more.

  5. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl. Add the lemon juice and half of the parsley, and stir until blended.

  6. Heat the oven to 350 F. Coat a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

  7. Remove the shrimp from the marinade. Press open the shrimp to flatten and place a generous tablespoon of the stuffing onto the belly of each shrimp.

  8. Arrange the stuffed shrimp in the prepared baking dish and drizzle the reserved marinade over the shrimp.

  9. Bake until the shrimp are opaque, about 10 minutes, and then remove the shrimp from the oven.

  10. Heat the broiler. Broil the shrimp, 4 to 6 inches from the heat source, until the stuffing is lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  11. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve immediately.
