Looking for Recipe for a particular Shrimp-stuffed dish recipe...

Recommended Posts

I have no idea if this is the right area to be in for this question, but here goes..  Please let me know to redirect if needed...

Ok, my longTerm girlfriend of almost twenty years has talked about a dish she had in Austin forever now.........either baked or deepFried, with batter, and stuffed with shrimp..  I know I could "search" this, but so much better to meld with other food minds.....:)  If you have an idea about this or seen a recipe on this site, please shoot me a link..  Thanks for all responses in advance....!

Has she said anything about what the shrimp was stuffed *into* - like a pepper, a pasta wrapping, a chicken?

Uh, yeah, I guess it would have been helpful to mention what it was stuffed into!!  (guess I was having "one of those days" when posting this earlier....)..  Sorry for that oversight...

Anyway, it was stuffed into an avocado!  Sounds awesome to me, and I was hoping you guys might be familiar with a recipe along these lines that you were personally familiar with..  She cannot recall the name of the restaurant, as it was long ago.............during one of those great scenarios of finding your favorite dish at an previously unknown restaurant..  I wish I had more info for you..  Keeping fingers crossed that this might sound familiar to someone on this forum.....:)

Thanks again for your help!

Well now, that rings a bell! Please check out this post by member @Dejah about Deep-fried stuffed avocado, something she first had in Bryan, Texas. The linked post gives a picture; two posts later she gives the recipe.

@Skyclad Please let us know how it turned out once you have presented it to the young lady for whom you are preparing the dish! A photograph may also help9_9

Cape Town - At the foot of a flat topped mountain with a tablecloth covering it.

Some time ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.

Hola to all you guys that responded back on the above..  I have not made this item yet since I could not find the recipe  that you said was two posts later..  Just no luck on that one..  If you have time Smithy, could you please post a direct link to the recipe page??  I do thank you again (all these months later!) on directing me to this..  Looks right on, just can't find the recipe.....:/  

Thanks in advance for your additional help....:)
