Shrimp Stuffed Bell Peppers


I became inspired when I ran across a recipe in the "New Southern Cook Book" of 1906 called Crabs or Shrimp Baked in Bell Pepper. However, the set of seasonings just isn't what would go well for our family. Plus stuffed peppers just have to have rice! So I put a little this and that and came up with the following recipe:

5 bell peppers, whole
1 bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 small stalks celery, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 2/3 cups rice, cooked
1/4th cup +2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
1 lb shrimp, cleaned
2 tablespoons chicken broth
about 3 tablespoons butter
Creole Seasoning
Italian Seasoning
Salt & Pepper

Take 5 bell peppers and cut the tops off and remove seeds from inside. Place in casserole dish and set aside. In about 1 or 2 tablespoons butter saute bell pepper, onions, celery, and garlic until tender. Remove veggies from skillet and into a large bowl. Now add shrimp to skillet with about 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle a dash of creole seasoning and Tabasco sauce. Saute until just done. Cut shrimp into smaller pieces. Now add shrimp and remaining butter, if any, into bowl with veggies. To this add 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, all of the rice, Parmesan cheese, creole seasoning {about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon for mild}, a couple dashes of Italian Seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Next, add about two tablespoons of chicken broth to the mixture. Mix well. Then stuff the five peppers. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs over the top. In addition you could also sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese if desired. Cook in oven at 350 for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until bell peppers are tender to your liking.

Note: I cooked mine for 35 minutes and they still came out a little firm for my tastes, so I think next time I will set them in salted boiling water for about 10 minutes before stuffing them and placing them in the oven. I also think crab would have been a nice addition if I had had any.

Here is the original recipe if your interested - Crabs or Shrimp Baked in Bell Pepper - Use one dozen bell peppers, one quart of picked shrimps, one teacupful of grated breadcrumbs, two tablespoonfuls of butter, one teaspoonful of mixed mustard, one-fourth teaspoonful of pepper, one-eighth teaspoonful of celery seed, one egg, salt, grating of nutmeg. Cut the stem end from the peppers; cut out the seed and veins; soak the peppers half hour in cold water. Cream the butter; add the egg and seasonings; next add the crumbs. Mix these ingredients well and add to the shrimps. Drain the peppers, stuff with the mixture, arrange in a pan open side up. Cook twenty minutes in a hot oven. Crabs may be prepared the same way. Serve as a fish course at dinner.--Miss Parloa
