  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. With a large spoon, scoop out the centers of each zucchini half, reserving the meat.
  3. In a large bowl, mix about 1/2 the reserved zucchini meat, the egg, crabmeat, shrimp, and garlic. Blend lime juice and lemon juice into the mixture, and stir in the Italian seasoned bread crumbs. Season with oregano, basil, and pepper.
  4. Arrange the zucchini halves in a medium baking dish. Generously stuff the halves with the crabmeat and shrimp mixture.
  5. Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and top with cheese. Return to the oven, and broil 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

I followed the recipe but I did add a little water to the baking sheet as other reviewers suggested. I also used one large zucchini instead of four smaller ones and added diced mushrooms. I di...

Very good recipe when you've got too many zicchini in the fridge. The only change I would make is cut the amount of garlic and oregano in half. All the spices kind of overwhelmed the seafood.

I followed the recipe, but what very disappointed. The zucchini was mushy and the filling bland. Hubby enjoyed the filling. I will not be making this again, but thanks for sharing.

The flavor was wonderful and very good, my stuffing came otu to be too much and it just overflowed which was odd but looked very impressive
