any good recipes for stuffed seafood mirliton?


I was thinking of doing something different this year, I usually bring jambalaya to my in-laws(for Thanksgiving) Wanted to bring them something a little different.

I know my aunt used to make it by stuffing bell peppers?

btw, I live in Wisconsin, but they LOVE all Louisiana food

Where you are located is the biggest hindrance to your desired product. All you will have access to is frozen shrimp. A 50-50 mix of shrimp and crab(the crab you will get is going to be from Indonesia or some other South Pacific paradise) goes a whole lot farther when making stuffed mirliton. How many people do you plan on feeding is the first question?

I've made Besh's mirliton, shrimp and crabmeat dressing. It's a casserole and it's very good.

Yeah, I know I'm limited with my seafood quality, although I could get some decent stuff from whole foods.

I'll be feeding about a dozen or so people.
although it's not the main course-this year we are having ribs

Whatever you do, don't use frozen crabmeat. It's awful.

You can pretty much make any of them in a casserole. Look at Gee's recipe and I have one either in the recipe book or the thread for stuffed eggplant. You can use mirliton for that one, as well. You would need more mirlitons since they're smaller, but there's nothing that has to be exact about the recipe.

Get 7 mirliton, that way you have an overage to stuff. 1.5 lbs 25-30 tails, 3/4 cups of bell pepper, onion, celery to start. The innards of the boiled mirlition minus the bigassed seed in the middle. Take all of this and mix with the very lightly sauteed shrimp(get to the point of pink then stop). Season with whatever you got to taste. Add just the barest amount of bread crumbs as a binder, or do it in the nude(no binder if done so add some more shrimp). Stuff the mirlition to the most each will hold, cover with Italian herb/garic bread crumbs. Bake at 350 for 30.

ETA, I assume you know to split the mirliton to prepare it for boiling(simmering in fact), it is done when a paring knife "easily" pierces the flesh, cold water immediately (to stop cooking))

I did that "pasteurized" shite once in St Louis. That stuff makes the word shite seem like a mild compliment for both flavor and texture. There should be a law for that stuff, none should be allowed to be imported as it gives crab meat a bad name. There may be some yankees that buy it and think it is wunderful. Let them have at it til they die off.
