    Kim D.'s Note:

    When I was in college, I worked at Pappasito's as a waitress. I LOVED their brochette shrimp and I asked the cook for the recipe. He didn't give me the exact measurements, but he did give me the list of ingredients. I went home and played around with the quantities of the ingredeints and came up with what I think is very close to the real thing!

      these are great - the best we've had - they are a bit time-consuming to prepare, but well worth it. Bigger shrimp are key so you have the room for the cheese and pepper. Sam's Club - U15 shrimp - 2lb bag $22 - gives you about 30 nice size shrimp and they are excellent

      "awesome.. really not spicy at all. Do use the 15 per pound shrimp as it is difficult to wrap smaller shrimp. Also, after stuffing the shrimp with the pepper and cheese, lay the bacon flat on cutting board and place the shrimp about one inch from the end of slice. roll the end over then pick the whole thing up and then continue to wrap covering as much of the large end of the shrimp otherwise when grilling, thje pepper and cheese tend to fall out...
