Give thanks with our Gluten Free Shrimp Stuffing recipe, the perfect side dish for a big Thanksgiving dinner surrounded by your friends and family.

First, prepare the gluten-free cornbread the night before using package instructions. After baking the cornbread, let it cool a few minutes and cut the cornbread into ½ inch pieces and refrigerate overnight. Refrigerating overnight is done to dry out the cornbread for dressing.

To make the tasty stuffing, start by preheating your oven to 375°F. As the oven heats up, melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Next, cook the shrimp, turning every 4 minutes or until the shrimp is pink and cooked through. Butter adds a burst of flavor and creaminess to the shrimp. Next, add and sauté the rest of vegetables with the seasoning.

When done, combine the cornbread, shrimp, vegetable stock and scallions in a 9x13 glass pan. Mix well, ensuring the ingredients are blended together.

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. The scent of Thanksgiving will fill your kitchen. Gluten Free Shrimp Stuffing is a great side dish to your holiday dinner, whether that’s turkey, ham or chicken. Your friends and family are sure to love this recipe.
