The Best Seafood Stuffing
When you think of the word stuffing, what comes to mind?
Well, not only is this side dish a perfect addition to a Thanksgiving feast, but it's a great dish to bring to all occasions. It has a delicious combination of seafood that is seasoned to perfection and is combined with a buttery flaky cornbread base.
Seriously, how good does that sound?!
Honestly, this Savannah seafood stuffing recipe is perfect to make with a weeknight dinner, any potluck party, or holiday. And it's the perfect way to satisfy those seafood lovers in your life.
Also, it's just a delicious change-up from the traditional stuffing, and I think the shrimp and crab combined with the classic stuffing elements are so much tastier than any plain stuffing or stuffing with meat. But if you want traditional stuffing, this southern-style stuffing is a fantastic recipe to make.
Plus, this crowd-pleasing dish really doesn't take much time or effort. You can saute everything in one skillet and then just have to transfer it to a casserole dish, so the clean-up is super simple too.
By the way, if you're looking for more recipes for the ultimate Thanksgiving spread, these honey butter brussel sprouts, and asparagus casserole makes some great healthy sides.
And for a sauce to drizzle over this seafood stuffing, you have to give this seafood boil sauce a try.
Anyway, let's not waste any more time and jump into the ingredients you'll need to make this seafood stuffing recipe.
So, the ingredients you'll need for this stuffing are pretty simple. And if you don't already have the ingredients, just a quick trip to the store is all you'll need to take, and you'll be ready to go!
Anyway, here's what you'll need to make this delicious seafood stuffing:
- 2 tbsp. Butter
- ½ Onion, chopped
- ½ Red Bell Pepper, chopped
- 2 Celery Stalks, chopped
- 2 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 cup Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 cup Crab Meat
- 1 Cornbread, diced (around 4 cups)

Oh, and you can use fresh or frozen shrimp for this recipe. With that said, if you use frozen shrimp, here are some great ways to defrost it.
By the way, if you don't want to use seafood broth - or can't find it at the store - you can use vegetable or chicken broth instead. But, if you want that rich flavor of seafood, then stick with the seafood broth.
Ok, now that we have that out of the way, let's get into how to make this delicious seafood stuffing recipe!
How to Make Seafood Stuffing
Ok, so like I mentioned before, this recipe is very simple to make.
In just a few steps, you can have 4 large servings of this seafood stuffing that will be plenty to serve at a big dinner. Oh, and it only takes about 10 minutes of prep, so you'll have plenty of time to make other dishes.
Now, if you have your ingredients ready, let's get cooking!
Step 1: Cook the Veggies
First, you're going to start by preheating the oven to 350°F (180°C). Then, grease an oven-safe baking dish and set it aside for later.
Next, you're going to heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat and add the butter to it.
Once it melts, add the onion, red bell pepper, and celery and cook for 7 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent.
Step 2: Cook the Shrimp
Now that the veggies are slightly cooked, add the Old Bay seasoning to the veggies and give them a mix.
Then, add the shrimp to the skillet and layer it in one even layer on top of the veggies. Cook the shrimp for about 2 minutes on both sides until it turns pink.
Step 3: Combine The Elements
After everything has been cooked, transfer the stuffing mixture to a large mixing bowl.
Then, add the crab meat, cornbread broken up into pieces, broth, and eggs to the bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated.
Step 4: Bake and Serve
Once everything is mixed well, transfer the stuffing mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Then, bake for about 30 minutes, until the savannah seafood stuffing is golden brown and crunchy.
Serve garnished with fresh parsley, and enjoy!
How to Store Seafood Stuffing
As I mentioned, this recipe will make 4 large servings of seafood stuffing. And if you're serving it for a big dinner, odds are you won't have any leftovers.
But, if you do end up having some leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
How to reheat Seafood Stuffing
Ok, so the best way to reheat this savannah seafood stuffing is to put it back in the oven.
To do this, transfer the stuffing from the container back to a casserole dish and heat in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until it reaches your desired temperature.
