This Brazilian Shrimp stuffed pumpkin (Camarão na Moranga) is really easy to make and is the perfect dish to serve at any Fall dinner party. Actually, in Brazil it is enjoyed all year round!
Delicious, moist baked pumpkin filled with creamy shrimp (and/or prawn), onion, garlic, and cream cheese (or catupiry, a Brazilian creamy cheese)! It’s a simple dish that is going to wow yourself and your guests. If you don’t find a pumpkin you can also bake it in a casserole dish and it is still delicious and beautiful.
Serve it with rice and potato sticks (batata palha), trying to scoop out some moist pumpkin flesh too.
You can also use this creamy shrimp as a quiche filling.
