  • 2 cups finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup green pepper chopped
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 cup fresh chopped tomatoes
  • 1 pound shrimp chopped large

  • 4 - 5 whole medium bell peppers
  • salt, red pepper and black pepper to taste
  • basil and parsley to taste
  • 1/4 cup butter or olive oil
  • bread crumbs or panko crumbs for topping (seasoned optional)


  1. After slicing the top off the bell pepper for easy stuffing, parboil the bell peppers approximately 5 to 10 minutes in boiling water.
  2. In a medium saucepan, saute the onion, pepper, garlic, tomatoes and zucchini until tender.
  3. Season shrimp and add the chopped shrimp, salt, red pepper and black pepper to taste.
