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

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4

Place mirliton halves into a casserole dish. Scoop shrimp mixture into mirliton shells and bake for 30 minutes.
