Original Recipe (taken from whatscookingamerica.net):

Ingredients:

– 1 lb large shrimp, uncooked

– 3/4 cup soda cracker crumbs (about 18 crackers)

– 3 tablespoons butter, melted

– 1 (6-ounce) can minced clams

– 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

– 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

– salt and pepper

– 1/3 sup sherry (dry or sweet)

– parsley sprigs for garnish

– lemon wedges for garnish

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving tails on. Using a sharp knife, butterfly shrimp by cutting along the inner curve or underbelly about halfway (almost completely through), leaving the tails firmly attached. Press the shrimp down flat like a butterfly.

– In a medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, butter, clams (including liquid), parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Stuff each of the shrimp with the clam mixture. Arrange the stuffed shrimp in a large baking dish; pour sherry around the shrimp.

– Bake approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until shrimp are opaque in center (cut to test). Remove from oven. To serve, arrange shrimp on a serving platter. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges. Serve warm.
