During our Outback Steakhouse gift card giveaway a few weeks ago, many of you told us that the Crab Stuffed Shrimp was one of your favorite dishes. With a some good old fashioned “Jersey arm twisting.” You know what I mean. The very cooperative folks at he Outback were kind enough to share their top secret recipe with us. I hope you’ll give it a try and come back with your comments.
