Ingredients
  

  • 1 Snow Crab Cluster /or your favorite available Crab Cleaned
  • ½ pound of Shrimp - Cleaned and De-Veined
  • 4 Tomatoes - Medium sized - Greenhouse /Roma tomatoes work well - Cored out
  • 1 Ear of Corn on the Cob
  • 2 tablespoon of Minced Onion
  • 3 tablespoon of Red Bell Pepper / Green works / Poblano Peppers also
  • 1 tablespoon of additional Pepper like Orange Bell Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of old bay or favorite creole seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon of Ranch Dressing or Mayo
  • 1 tablespoon of Chopped Cilantro
  • Top with cheese or breadcrumbs

Instructions
 

  • Start by cleaning the crab. See instructional video in the article above, cut into medium pieces. You want to be able to see the crab pieces, so don't cut the crab too small.
  • Next peel and de-vein Shrimp, chop into medium-small pieces. ( You could Cook the shrimp part-way in butter & garlic before stuffing and combining all ingredients ) Crab - do not pre-cook ))
  • The tomatoes need to be cored. Keep the tops for garnish. Use a spoon and scoop out the pulp. Turn them upside down while chopping the rest of the ingredients allowing the tomatoes to drain the extra water out.
  • Cut the corn off the cob using a bundt pan if you have one. Next, chop the corn into small pieces. Think about each kernel being cut into thirds.
  • Dice bell pepper - small dice cut, Mince onion, chop cilantro.
  • Combine all vegetables first, combine well. Then add the shrimp and crab being careful to not break up the crab much more than it is. Add the seasoning, plus the ranch dressing and combine, then fill the tomatoes. Salt the insides of the tomatoes before filling. Top with cheese like parmesan or top with breadcrumbs.

Cooking

  • Preheated oven to 400 degrees, bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.
  • Halfway through the cooking process open the oven and add the tomato tops for garnish. Add the tops back to the tomatoes you cut off.

Cooking Onion, Pepper & Corn Optional

  • You could cook the onion, bell pepper and corn before combining all the ingredients together. While hot you can still add the cooked ingredients to the Shrimp & Crab. Just be sure to cook the stuffed tomatoes now. If you're doing a plan ahead meal plan, make sure you cool down the cooked stuffing ingredients before refrigerating.
