"Bruce Aidells is one of my favorite cookbook authors and a renowned expert on charcuterie, salumi and gourmet sausages. A recipe for Shrimp Stuffed with Sausages in Bruce's Complete Sausage Book (Ten Speed Press, 2000) pairs the marquee couple so cleverly that they stayed glued together. As a longtime fan of surf-and-turf, I was intrigued and inspired. Heck, I was more than inspired. I stole his idea!"
"My addition to Bruce's recipe is a lemon garlic sauce, which I drizzle on the cooked shrimp. I'm not sure Bruce would approve, but I just had to include one more element. I think you'll be amazed at what you can do with just these five ingredients." —Sara Moulton, star of "Sara's Weeknight Meals"

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
Arrange the shrimp on the prepared baking sheet with all shrimp facing the same direction to form a series of c's. Put about 1 tablespoon sausage in the center of each shrimp and press down so that the shrimp and sausage filling make a solid round.
Brush the shrimp lightly with oil and season with salt. Bake the stuffed shrimp until they have cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, a pinch of salt and enough water to create a sauce thin enough to drizzle.
Transfer the stuffed shrimp to 4 plates and drizzle each portion with some of the sauce.
