The key to making this recipe is make sure all your ingredients (besides the wine, shrimp, parsley & butter) and finely ground.
Your food processor will be your best friend for this recipe because you will be using it to grind your Ritz crackers finely. Add Ritz to your food processor and grind until fine. Add ground Ritz to a large bowl and set aside.
Add chourico, onion, parsley, and garlic to your food processor and process.
Once your chourico mixture is finely ground (almost to a paste), add it to a frying pan with the wine, and brown for about 3-5 minutes or until fragrant.
After the chourico mixture is done, turn off the heat and add the full stick of butter to the pan. After it melts, transfer the mixture to the bowl with Ritz Crackers. Sprinkle mixture with chopped parsley and black pepper.
Using clean hands, mix thoroughly until to forms one large ball that smaller balls can be plucked out of.
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and spray a casserole dish with nonstick; set aside.
On a cutting board peel your shrimp leaving only the tail on.
Place shrimp on your cutting board and slice horizontally through the middle section 3/4 of the way through (do not cut all the way through).
Open each side and spread them out. This is where your stuffing will sit.
After each shrimp is opened, add one heaping tablespoon of stuffing to each.
Bake for 15-18 minutes. Stuffing will be lightly browned, and shrimp translucent with an orange tip.
