Grilled Shrimp With Jalapenos

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 12 mins

We first had this shrimp at a restaurant in Park City, Utah. It's easy and so good to try at home. We have it at least once a month. Cook time depends on how large the shrimp are, don't overcook.


  1. Clean and devein shrimp, slice open along the back.
  2. Thinly slice jalapeño, place inside shrimp.
  3. Wrap each shrimp with 1/2 slice bacon.
  4. Use a toothpick to hold.
  5. Grill and serve with a spicy bbq sauce.

I was just tickled to see this recipe, it is so similar to one that I love! I am going to try it your way as soon as possible. They way that I have always done it is marinate the shrimp in a garlic/lemon/wine marinade, slice the jalapenos longwise, put the shrimp inside the jalapeno half, wrap with bacon and put on a skewer and grill...for yankee's who can't handle the heat I somtimes put cream cheese inside the jalapeno before I add the shrimp and bacon--it takes the edge off! But thank you for the variation--cannot wait to try it!
