Shrimp Stuffed Green Peppers is a great twist to the traditional green stuffed pepper. I love shrimp so mixing it with the green pepper was a great idea. I think this would be a great way to change up the pace of the traditional ground meat stuffed peppers. Perfect when you find a deal on shrimp too! Shrimp Stuffed Green Peppers have a great flavor and are perfect for Lent.
