Low Carb Crab Stuffed Shrimp

Low Carb Crab Stuffed ShrimpLow Carb Crab Stuffed ShrimpLow Carb Crab Stuffed Shrimp. OK  so this just came to me in a flash.  I was fixing Stuffed Shrimp which is certainly lowcarb and fabulous when it dawned on me:  Why not take the same ingredients in the stuffing, omit the Carbalose Flour Bread crumbs and use crab meat to do this low carb Crab Stuffed Shrimp with Béarnaise Sauce instead.  Oh Lordy, I love flashbulb moments and this was one of them. Low Carb Crab Stuffed ShrimpI had just purchased & picked a fresh dungeness crab and had lots left over after making Veal Oscar (Also See Steak Oscar) so…I experimented.  I also already had leftover Sauce Béarnaise from the same Oscar so testing this was a piece of cake. I don’t know what to say except this is unbelievable.  This may be my all time company-for-dinner recipe and the great thing…it is so easy.  Expensive?  Yes, but so easy and I guarantee you will WOW your friends. I realize crab meat is ridiculously expensive and in this case it might be OK to use imitation crab (unfortunately it is also full of starch as a binder and not low carb) but it would certainly keep the recipe within reach of the budget.
