Shrimp Brochette


"Butterflied shrimp are stuffed with jalapeno and wrapped in bacon, and it just gets better from there. There are never any leftovers when I make this recipe - it's a crowd pleaser! This goes great with dirty rice a nice green salad and crusty French bread. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat a grill for high heat. Soak skewers in water.
  2. Place a strip of jalapeno into the opening of butterflied shrimp. Wrap with a piece of the bacon, and thread onto skewers so that the shrimp is pierced once through the head, and once through the tail, and bacon is secure. You can usually fit about 6 shrimp on a skewer. Make sure there is a little space between the shrimp, this will help the bacon cook better. Season both sides of the shrimp generously with Cajun seasoning.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place shrimp skewers on the grill, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on one side. Turn, and place slices of cheese over the shrimp. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until bacon is browned, and cheese is melted.

WOW, What a great flavor!! I did not have Jack cheese, so I just melted some cheddar on top. These will be fabulous as appetizers if I can keep myself from eating them before serving them!!!!

Delicious! I found that it was easier to wrap the shrimp using raw bacon. To be sure the bacon cooked nicely I alternately raised and lowered the lid on my propane grill to maintain a small fl...

I was very excited to try this recipe, but was quite disappointed with the way it turned out. It was way too salty. I may try it again without the cajun mix.

My fav...they get eaten so fast, I never get to take a pictue. I had these alot when I lived in Texas, but can't find them very often now that I have moved. Awesome recipe.
