  • Wash the shrimp under running water and remove shell leaving the tail on. Butterfly each shrimp by running a sharp knife down the backside to the tail.
  • Add the stale bread to the eggs and let soak. Heat the butter in a large saucepan; add the onions, bell pepper and 3/4 cup of celery and sauté on low until soft. Stir in the crabmeat and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Remove bread from the eggs and quickly mash into the sautéed vegetables. Stir in the green onions and the next 6 ingredients mixing well. Cook a couple more minutes. Remove from heat until cool enough to handle.
  • Place 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of stuffing onto each shrimp. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place shrimp on a baking sheet in a single layer about half-inch apart.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mustard with the melted butter and mix in the season-all, crumbs and cornmeal. Sprinkle the tops of each shrimp with this mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 to 22 minutes or until the tails curl up and shrimp meat is bright white.
  • Watch closely towards the end of cooking as you don't want to mess up this kind of shrimp. Place under a broiler a couple of minutes to brown the top if desired after about 18 or 20 minutes. Again, don't overcook these please.
  • Serve with drawn butter and lemon wedges or over a rice dish of choice with a vegetable if desired.
