If you’re looking for an amazing summer (and perfect into fall) appetizer, look no further. My mother-in-law taught me this recipe just two weeks ago and I’ve served it three times since then – every time resulting in rave reviews. It’s simple enough, requiring only shrimp, jalapeño, and bacon, but the flavors that come together and the perfect bite-size portability make this a crowd favorite.
ONE Slice a jalapeño length-wise into thin strips. TWO unpeel jumbo sized de-veined shrimp and make a slice down the back. THREE insert the jalapeño strip into the back of the shrimp and wrap the entire thing in a half-slice of bacon. FOUR secure the bacon with a toothpick. FIVE grill these guys at high heat (about 400°) for 4 minutes per side.
Everyone will love these. Don’t be scared off by the jalapeño, when they’re grilled, the heat subsides and they just have an amazing flavor. Give them a try and let me know how you like them!
