Shrimp Conga - FDACS - Justin Timineri

Butterfly shrimp by cutting lengthwise along the back -- don't cut all the way through -- spreading shrimp open to look like a butterfly. Place shrimp on a well-greased baking sheet with cut side up. Combine remaining ingredients except parsley and paprika. Blend well. Stir in parsley. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture on top of each Florida shrimp. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until shrimp are no longer translucent in the center.
