I pre-ccok the shrimp and other shellfish.
Then, they are fine chopped/diced for stuffing.
If they get tough, it don't seem to matter since they are such small peices.
I have never checked the IT of ABT's when I think they are done.
But I bet that is not high enough for long enough to "cook" anything.
May do some checking next time out of curiosity.
