  • Slice shrimp down the back as deep as you can without cutting through, to make a nice opening for stuffing. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the crabmeat, chili sauce, horseradish, hot pepper sauce and capers. Mix in enough of the cream cheese to form a sticky paste.

  • Stuff the openings of each shrimp with about 1 tablespoon of the crab salad. Sprinkle paprika over the top. Chill for about 30 minutes before serving.

These were awesome! They looked as good as they tasted too. I followed the recipe exactly although I would add a little more hot sauce next time just a personal preference. Thanks for my new go-to impressive(yet easy!) recipe. I also left out the capers as I don't care for them. I have made these with "fake" crab as well and they are still delicious! Read More

This was ok I didn't add as much of the spicy ingredients as the recipe called for because I wasn't sure if all the guests would like it. It was good but if I make it again I would add all the spice to it was abit bland without it! Read More

I made this as one of my Christmas appetizers and everyone enjoyed it. I had trouble with the consistency of the crabmeat though. It was very very wet and watery. I also added much more horseradish and chili sauce - - it would have been too bland without it. Thanks Lolo. Read More

These shrimp are really great & spicy. Even when served the next day there is no loss of flavor or texture. Read More

these were gone within 10 mins!!! everybody loved them and agreed they must be made again but double batch - at least. I found I needed more horseradish and chili sauce to get a true "deviled" taste. I steamed the shrimp in a beer/old bay mixture. SUPER! I could have eaten them all myself!! Read More

Made these for Christmas and did not go over well. Flavor not bad just not worth all the effort to stuff. Read More

I used half Thai chili sauce and half regular added much more horse radish and tobasco to taste a bit more nippy. Bought giant prawns and dungeness crab meat from Costco quite a savings! Made this for a cocktail party and was a huge hit. People took the extras home and said they made a meal of just 3 of them. Excellent (but hard to slice prawns exactly right) Read More
