In a large pot, fill half way with water, add Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil, add halved lemon, place on high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Once boiling, add shrimp and cover. Bring to a rolling boil again, uncover and boil for 3 to 4 minutes. (If your burner brings to a boil slower than others then boil shrimp for a shorter period. If it’s quick to bring to a boil, boil shrimp for a longer period.) Remove shrimp from pot; place into a large bowl or on a serving tray, squeeze juice of sectioned lemon over shrimp and sprinkle evenly with Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil. Serve with your favorite cocktail sauce or butter sauce and enjoy.
Note: You may also boil vegetables, such as corn, potatoes, sweet onions, whole garlic and mushrooms. We often boil veggies first, then place in a large bowl and cover with foil. Then boil shrimp in the same water, adding a few more tablespoons of Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil to the water before adding shrimp.
Note: We use approximately 3 Tbsp (1.5 ounces) of Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil for every pound of shrimp, crawfish, crab or vegetable.
Serving Size: 4
- 6 medium bell peppers
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/2 lb. lump crabmeat
- 1/2 lb. small shrimp, peeled, deveined & chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- ¼ cup onion, diced
- ¼ cup bell pepper, diced (use cut off tops)
- 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
- 2 Tbs. Slap Ya Mama White Pepper Blend Cajun Seasoning
- 8-10 Dashes of Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce
- 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut tops off of bell peppers (set tops aside for later use), remove seeds and rinse. In a large pot of water, boil bell peppers with a little salt for approximately 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. In a large skillet on medium heat combine shrimp, garlic, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, Slap Ya Mama White Pepper Blend Seasoning and Slap Ya Mama Pepper Sauce. Sauté for approximately 10 minutes or until shrimp are light pink in color. Add crabmeat and sauté for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat. In a large bowl, combine the sautéed mixture, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and breadcrumbs. Mix well until cheese is melted and all ingredients are combined. With a spoon, fill each bell pepper with mixture and top off with remaining shredded cheddar cheese. Place bell peppers standing up in a shallow baking dish, making sure that they don’t fall over. Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the baking dish and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Enjoy!
