If you’re looking for an amazing summer (and perfect into fall) appetizer, look no further.  My mother-in-law taught me this recipe just two weeks ago and I’ve served it three times since then – every time resulting in rave reviews.  It’s simple enough, requiring only shrimp, jalapeño, and bacon, but the flavors that come together and the perfect bite-size portability make this a crowd favorite.


jalapeno shrimp

ONE Slice a jalapeño length-wise into thin strips. TWO unpeel jumbo sized de-veined shrimp and make a slice down the back.  THREE insert the jalapeño strip into the back of the shrimp and wrap the entire thing in a half-slice of bacon.  FOUR secure the bacon with a toothpick. FIVE grill these guys at high heat (about 400°) for 4 minutes per side.

Everyone will love these.  Don’t be scared off by the jalapeño, when they’re grilled, the heat subsides and they just have an amazing flavor.  Give them a try and let me know how you like them!

  • These sound delicious! Do you think I could bake or broil them in an oven at 400 degrees instead of grill?

  • Yummy! These look so good.

  • Ooooh, these look yummy. And perfect timing with football season around the bend (which goes hand in hand with indulging in lots of snacky finger foods!). Will be pinning, for sure. Thanks!
