These were a big hit with my BF!! I liked them too, but when it comes to bacon, I like mine burned! next time I may pre-cook the bacon a bit longer before wrapping to try and achieve a more crisp exterior. The flavor of the marinated shrimp, jalapeno and bacon was fabulous though and the sauce has a nice fiery bite! Thank you for sharing this delicious appetizer.
