    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe came from a really old copy of Southern Living magazine. I haven't tried it, but it sounds great. I plan on trying it as soon as I find some fresh shrimp! The mix of bacon, tomatoes, garlic, and bell peppers sounds great! Serve over hot, cooked rice or grits. The original recipe didn't call for any seasoning, but I like to add a shake or two of Brennan's Cajun Seasoning Mix, or something similar. Also, have hot sauce on hand for those that like it hot!

      Cook bacon in a heavy skillet until brown and crisp. Remove from skillet and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add tomatoes, green peppers, and garlic to skillet; simmer until peppers are tender and tomatoes are reduced to about one-half. This takes about 40 minutes.

      Could this be better than Shrimp Scampi??? DH thinks so; he loves these ingredients. You can tell it is an old SL recipe; today SL would tell you to drain off all but one tablespoon of bacon grease to be more dietarily correct. I made as directed, except I purchased 1 pound of Old Bay-seasoned steamed shrimp. I used a drained 28-ounce can of whole San Marzano tomatoes, but stewed tomatoes could be used as well. Easy dinner, you can introduce your desired seasoning through your shrimp or tomato choices. The author of this recipe obviously subscribes to the school of thought that every dish can be improved with the addition of bacon (and often, I think that camp is correct). It takes time to cook the bacon, and 45 minutes to simmer, but nothing is complicated and you don't have to tend to the dish slavishly. This was a very satisfying meal. Made for 1-2-3 Hits tag game.

      What a full flavor recipe, "DELICIOUS"!!! After cooking the bacon I sauteed the green pepper strips and garlic in the bacon grease for a few minutes before adding in the tomatoes, other than that made as written and after adding in the shrimp I stirred in the crumbled bacon before serving over Classic Saffron Rice. This is defiantly a keeper, thanks for posting. Made for Mardi Gras Photo Tag.
