    LifeIsGood's Note:

    Here is a Southwestern inspired dish from Tyler Florence. Bacon-wrapped shrimp is a delicious combination as it is, but pairing it with the salsa and vinaigrette puts this recipe over-the-top! This shrimp recipe also works well on the grill. Serving it with margaritas and/or beer wouldn't be a bad idea! Note: You can make the salsa and vinaigrette ahead of time and keep refrigerated. You could also prep the shrimp and wrap with bacon ahead of time. That way, it will be a breeze when it comes time for dinner.

      First of all I did cut the ingredient amounts in half for the 2 of us, but then I also used only a little more than half of an avocado & about half of one jalapeno, but that was about it, & I was happy enough with the resulting salsa! Very satisfying & enjoyable shrimp dish! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      I enjoyed these shrimp for dinner tonight. I made as directed but added the step of blanching and peeling the tomato prior to de-seeding. I found the salsa to be very tangy and different (mine was also extremely spicy due to leaving the seeds in the jalapenos) and the chipotle in adobo sauce added a smoky spice to the tomato vinaigrette. Presentation was lovely. Thanks for sharing.
