Serve these nice and hot, or let them cool to room temperature. If you'd like to make this a little more contemporary, you can add a dash of balsamic vinegar to the red peppers and scallions as they cook. In true Italian-American style, these are topped with butter, but in Italy, we would use olive oil. Best yet, top them with butter, "bless" them all with a little olive oil.

In this dish, high heat and speed are essential. Make sure the pan is good and hot when you add the shrimp and that it is wide enough to hold all the shrimp pieces in a single layer (so the pan doesn't cool down as the shrimp go in). And be sure to have all your ingredients right by the stove-once the shrimp go into the pan, it's "full speed ahead."
by Paula Disbrowe The jalapeños will be easier to fill if you allow the cream cheese mixture to chill for at least 30 minutes before assembling. They will hold their shape better under the broiler if they are covered and chilled again before cooking. For the best flavor the entire jalapeño should be cooked throughout until it's drab.
