large shrimp - peeled and deveined
Hubs made these tonight - I'm merely the critic! These were knock-out delicious, but I have to think his putting his own spin on them had a lot to do with that. First, he used beautiful, large, meaty shrimp - 13-15 count. These big guys required more than just a third of a slice of bacon, so Hubs didn't cut the bacon until after he partially cooked it in the microwave and saw how long he needed the pieces to be. As for the spices, he cut waaaaaaay back on the pepper and that was definitely to our liking. Finally, he didn't want the muss and fuss of frying them, so he opted to broil them instead. When we make these again, however, we'll make it easy on ourselves and just use a good Cajun seasoning rather than mix all the herbs and spices individually. This would be a fine and proud addition to your holiday appetizer table.
too much work for the final outcome. and no one liked.
I made it using the amounts in the recipe, and it was WAY too spicy. They were still pretty good though, and I will definitely try them again using much less pepper.
WOOOOO HOOOOO, these where so over powering with spices you lost the flavor of the shirmp. There alot of work. I think I'll try again some other time and not coat them as much. I used a quarter of the white pepper and cayenne that the recipe called for and still they were very spicy
The spiciness was good. Very flavorful dish. Only thing I would do is cook the bacon more before wrapping the shrimp. I would cook it in the micro and after wrapping the shrimp finish cooking in the broiler instead of in a fry pan.
this is the only meal my husband has asked me to make again!
We used much much less cayenne and white pepper. And medium shrimp since that's what I had in the freezer. It was soooo good!!!! We will definitely be making this again. Sooo very tasty.
a little too spicy, but we toned it down a bit and it was wonderful. Also good done on the BBQ :)
