Baked Stuffed Shrimp - by Lisa Roberts - "
This is a very simple recipe that I learned when I lived in Portsmouth RI. One of my favorites. The first time I had this recipe was in a elegant restaurant in Portsmouth. I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but I do know it use to be a nunnery."  -  This recipe is from our 1st Cookbook. (Very limited quantities left!)


1 dozen jumbo shrimp, shelled with tail on and split down the middle
1 1/2 sticks of butter 
2 tablespoons minced onions
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers crushed
1 quarter pound minced small scallops
1 stale cinnamon roll without icing.
