  • 1/2 cup cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced celery

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Prepare the Peppers: Preheat your oven to 375°F. Cut the tops off the bell peppers, remove the seeds and membranes, and set them aside.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté onions, celery, red peppers, and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until pink, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Combine Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together cooked shrimp, crab meat, cooked rice, parsley, mayonnaise, lemon juice, seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  4. Stuff the Peppers: Stuff each bell pepper with the seafood mixture and place them in a baking dish.
  5. Add Cheese: Top each stuffed pepper with a mix of shredded cheddar and gruyere cheeses.
  6. Bake: Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Serve: Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
