Grilled Bacon Wrapped Cheese and Jalapeno Stuffed Shrimp

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
These shrimp make an awesome appetizer and are a hit every time I serve them.
 
Shrimp
 
Butterfly several large shrimp and stuff with this mixture:
 
Mix together:
a handful of shredded ColbyJack cheese
1 jalapeno pepper, minced (no seeds)
1 clove garlic, minced
 
When making the cheese mixture, squeeze it together with your hand to make a lump, then pinch off a solid lump to stuff the shrimp with.
 
Wrap the stuffed shrimp with bacon and secure with a toothpick if necessary (I usually cut bacon strips in half or in thirds or you will have a lot of bacon with a little shrimp flavoring. As much as I love bacon it is easy to eat too many of these and go into bacon overload). Jalapeno bacon is good with these. Our local grocery chain used to carry chipotle bacon but discontinued it - the chipotle bacon put these over the top.
 
 
 
Marinade (no measuring- I eyeball it):
 
Tiger sauce
oil (olive or canola are best)
dill weed
lemon (or lime juice) - just a little bit
optional: small amount of either tequila or rum
 
Marinate an hour or so.
 
 
 
Grill
 
I set my grill to about 300-350 degrees and cook them slowly. Applewood is a good wood to use to grill these. When the bacon is done, they are ready. I usually turn them over once. Enjoy. This can be a messy recipe when cooked - the cheese oozes out, but they are wonderful!
