    Cool Great Balls of Fire

    Looking for a recipe for Great Balls of Fire from Joe's Crab Shack. It's an appetizer with crab, shrimp, jalapeno, cream cheese in a lightly breaded ball, served with ranch dipping sauce.
    I would like to have this recipe along with what kind of seasoning they are using to make the sun-set fire grilled steam pots.

    I found a recipe for the crab dip that they serve there I am wondering if it is the same. other than needing to add the shrimp and the jalapenos to it and rolling it into bread crumbs.

    Don't forget to roll the balls in an egg and milk mixture after it comes out of freezer. Then deep fry until golden brown. Sorry i forgot this in my other post.

    I did a google search for seafood great balls of fire and it lead me to http://hubpages.com/hub/Joes-Crab-Shack-Copycat-Recipes

    I wonder if this is the recipe you might be looking for with some jalapeno added:

    Seafood Stuffing like Joe's Crab Shack's®

    Serves: 8
    Prep. Time: 0:25

    1/4 cup margarine
    1/2 bunch celery - trimmed, diced
    3 lrg. onions - diced
    1 1/2 Tbls. minced garlic
    1/2 lb. pollock fillets
    1/2 lb. salad shrimp - chopped
    1 oz. shrimp base - see Notes, below
    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1/4 tsp. white pepper
    2 cups unseasoned croutons
    1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    1/2 lb. crab claw meat


    Herbs & Spices at the Firehouse Pantry


    -Sauté celery, onion, and garlic in margarine for until translucent.
    -Add pollock and cook for 5-7 minutes.
    -Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes.
    -Drain most (but not all) of liquid from pan.
    -Stir in shrimp base and peppers.
    -Fold in croutons and breadcrumbs.
    -Fold in crab meat.

    Notes: Shrimp base is a thick, paste-like bouillon that can be found in the supermarket next to the bouillon and granules. If you can't find it, use chicken soup base OR 2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules.

    Joe's uses this mix in many of their other dishes:

    Crab Balls: Roll stuffing into 1" balls, roll in flour, and deep-fry until brown.
