Introducing Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Shrimp!
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Shrimp
(Yields 32 appetizers)
1 quart gourmet olive oil
32 peeled and de-veined medium shrimp, tail-on
4 ounces of pickled jalapeno peppers, cut into slivers
Carefully heat up your oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees.
Clean and then cut the shrimp along the back, nearly through to the front.
Stuff each shrimp with a sliver of jalapeno, then wrap with half a slice of bacon.
Secure with a toothpick.
Cook the shrimp in batches in the hot oil until the bacon is crispy and golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
Use a paper towel lined tray or plate to remove any excess grease / oil.
Enjoy with your favorite sauce and beverage.
