This month fish is getting "stuffed"! "Stuffing is not just for Turkey! Let's get creative and share some stuffed fish recipes. How about a whole stuffed fish, or stuffed shrimp or fish fillets, perhaps a stuffing recipe containing fish (oysters anyone?) or a lobster or crab imperial. Your only limitation is your imagination."
And off I went! I stumbled across this seafood stuffing recipe that turned out to be a really tasty treat. It was moist, and jam packed with seafood and tender bites of veggies. We all really enjoyed it! It's very hearty and filling and we debated back and forth what we thought this might best be served alongside, because it has SO much seafood in it! I voted for a big crisp salad, or perhaps steak for "surf and turf"? However you might choose to enjoy it, this seafood stuffing was a tasty surprise!

- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bell pepper, onion, celery, crabmeat, and shrimp; cook and stir for about 5 minutes or until veggies are beginning to soften. Set aside.
