large shrimp, peeled and deveined and butterflied
sharp Cheddar cheese, cut into strips
fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded
Old Bay Seasoning TM, or to taste
thick cut bacon
These are a bit time consuming, but they're well worth the effort! My friends just love these. I've made them along with grilled steak and chicken, which I'll have leftovers of. But, very rarely are there any of these great, rich, spicy shrimp! Very good!
This recipe was a lot more work than it originally seemed. The thick cut bacon burned before the cheese melted and the shrimp cooked throughly.
Had no bacon on hand so skipped that part along with the seasoning stuff. I used a smoked bacon cheddar cheese ball and cut thin slices to go with the thin slices of jalapeno. Along with some mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, sweet yellow onion and bell pepper strips, these were the most amazing kabobs ever. I mixed up some Chablis with virgin olive oil, lemon juice and one of those italian spice grinders to baste the kabobs with. You would never believe how quickly these disappeared!
These shrimp are delicious !! We added cajun spices to the shrimp before wrapping just for a little extra heat. Also, heeding other reviewer's advice, I cooked the bacon 1/2 way before wrapping it on the shrimp. Doing it this way, the shrimp didn't overcook on the grill. This is a new grilling staple for us - Thanks so much for the great recipe !!
I precooked the bacon a little bit and put these on a sheet of aluminum foil on the grill on indirect heat. They were harder than I thought to put together and did take some time but once you got in the rhythm it wasn't so bad. Tasted wonderful!
This reccipe is a little time consuming, but one of my friends gave it 67 stars. Everyone loved it. The only thing that I changed based upon previous reviews wass to use a thinner cut of bacon, and bake for about 15 minutes at 400. I then turned over the shrimp, poured out the fat and cheese that had accumulated on the pan and broiled for the last 7 or 8 minutes. Perfection. Than you so mmuch for posting the recipe.
This was good, but next time I will not use thick bacon because the shrimp were over cooked. I will also try it with green chili peppers.
I would rate this as ...ok. I made this recipe along with two other " shrimp-on-a-stick" recipes for a dinner party. These guys lingered while the others did not. Just missing ...something?
