Florida Seafood Recipe

Shrimp Conga

  (Photo Below)
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 ounce bleu cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
Butterfly shrimp by cutting lengthwise along the back -- don't cut all the way through -- spreading shrimp open to look like a butterfly. Place shrimp on a well-greased baking sheet with cut side up. Combine remaining ingredients except parsley and paprika. Blend well. Stir in parsley. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture on top of each Florida shrimp. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until shrimp are no longer translucent in the center.

Approximately 30 hors d'oeuvres
