Seafood-Stuffed Mirliton/Chayote
65 mins (prep 15, cooking 50)
10 ingredients
4-6 servings
A fairly simple and very authentic Creole recipe from New Orleans that I ate at the late, great Ugelsich's restaurant. (They prepared it with eggplant rather than chayote -- they're equally delicious.) Use crab meat or shrimp or a mixture of both. Two chayote halves are a good light entree, or one half is right for a side dish.
