"My father and his Chinese 'brother's' recipe for the best deep fried shrimp, now famous in our town. If you have leftover bacon, don't worry; you can deep fry it and that's for you! For a sauce, ketchup and horseradish work great but these are great by them self!" — Ramey Bekish

vegetable oil for frying
peeled and deveined medium shrimp, tail-on
1 (4 ounce) can
pickled jalapeno peppers, cut into slivers
bacon, cut in half
I baked ours, with the exception of cholesterol, I think I've managed to make this MUCH healthier :) First, I par-baked TURKEY bacon in half-slices. This reduces both sodium AND fat and left the bacon pliable enough to wrap. Then, I cleaned & roasted 10 FRESH jalapenos in a drizzle of olive oil & a pinch of sea salt for about 10 minutes. Again, a reduction of sodium AND leaving nutrition in the pepper. Then, I wrapped about a 1/3 of each jalapeno & a half-slice of bacon around each shrimp & secured with a toothpick. I baked them at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. In addition, I prepared an "eye-balled" provolone cheese sauce for dipping. YUMMMMM!
These were very good but we did grill instead of deep-fry ours. The tastes were great!!
My husband and I have friends that own a very reputed Chinese restaurant (they come from China, actually) that we love going to. They serve this there and I've been trying to get the recipe for ages. Now, I'll finally be able to make this at home. Thanks for sharing!
amazing, but for the stuffing I sliced fresh jalepenos and sateed them in butter with crushed garlic and chopped onions with some jamacian jerk seasoning. The jalepenos tasted really good on their own and the excess made a good topper for the shrimp to enhance presentation. :p
This was a phenomenal recipe!!!!!! I made a couple changes because me and my family are lovers of spice. When I halved the jalepenos i left the seeds and membranes to really have some flavor. However these are very hard to keep togetehr when turning over on the grill. next time I may bake them.
this is the best recipe like this that i have come across for bacon shrimp so easy so quick so dang delious!!
These were great. I used fresh jalapeno slivered b/c thats what i had and I fried them on the grill in an aluminum pan with hot oil in it. I will be making these again. Thanks!
These are wonderful little party treats. We really liked them, but be careful not to put too much of the jalapeno in the shrimp - they can get HOT! Thanks for sharing :o)
