Ingredients

4 mirlitons

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 stick butter

1/2 cup chopped green onion

3 stalks celery, chopped

1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1/4 pound shrimp, peeled, tailed, deveined and chopped

1/2 cup bread crumbs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and add about a 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning. Add the mirliton, lower the heat and cook for 30 to 45 minutes until it is the consistency of a soft potato. Drain mirliton. Put a knife in the crease, cut the mirliton in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving at least 1/4-inch all around. Set pulp aside. Turn upside down to let them mirliton drain.
  3. In skillet over medium heat melt butter and add chopped vegetables until soft; about 5 to 10 minutes. Chop the mirliton pulp and add to skillet. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning and the shrimp and stir to combine. Stir in the bread crumbs and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Place mirliton halves into a casserole dish. Scoop shrimp mixture into mirliton shells and bake for 30 minutes.
