Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

See also

At my house we had loved this recipe for bacon wrapped scallops. So, one night I thought I’d tweak the recipe a little by using shrimp instead; and now it’s a hit! For less heat, skip the jalapenos.

What You Need:
(Makes: 2 & 1/2 dozen)

1/2 cup of creamy Caesar salad dressing, divided
1 pound of uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
15 bacon strips, cut in half
2 jalapeno peppers*, seeded and thinly sliced

What to Do:
Pour 6 tablespoons of dressing into a large resealable plastic bag; add shrimp. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 15 minutes.

STEP 2) Meanwhile, in a skillet or microwave, cook bacon until cooked but not crisp. Drain on paper towels.

STEP 3) Drain and discard marinade; place a jalapeno slice on each shrimp. Wrap bacon around shrimp; secure ends with toothpicks. Place shrimp on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.

STEP 4) Broil 4 inch from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink, basting frequently with remaining dressing. Remove toothpicks.

*Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
