With the “Just Stuff It!” Challenge going on I searched for what might be on sale at one of the local stores. Sprouts had U15 shrimp on sale for $7.98 per lb. so I purchased a pound. I decided to prepare them my two favorite ways of cooking shrimp. The first is what I call Atomic Shrimp. (Which is bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheddar cheese and a slice of jalapeño. As the jalapeño doesn’t make it very “Atomic”, I switched it out for slices of serrano chilies. Here are most of the ingredients. I peeled and deveined the shrimp and then butterflied them. I also sliced the cheese and serrano chilies. I carefully placed the cheese and serrano in the shrimp and wrapped them with a slice of bacon. Once I had 10 of them done I placed them on the preheated kamado. I grilled them for approximately 5 to 6 minutes per side and once the bacon looked crispy I plated the 5 biggest ones up with a cilantro garnish and a Negra Modelo. Here are those pics. Delicious!!!!! I had 9 shrimp leftover so I skewered them, sprayed they with some EVOO and sprinkled them with some Tajin seasoning. Grilled them for approximately 3 minutes per side. Here are the plated pics with the Negra Modelo. These were also delicious but not quite as good as the bacon wrapped ones. Thanks for looking.
Atomic Shrimp = Bacon Wrapped Shrimp stuffed with Smoked Cheddar Cheese and Jalapeño. This weekend I also made these again. I took some U13 shrimp and split them as much as possible and then filled the cavity with sharp cheddar cheese, then a slice of jalapeno and then wrapped them in bacon. I place them on the preheated (to 300) kamado for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Let them cool for just a few minutes and then plated them up with some cilantro garnish. These are sooo tasty. Thanks for looking.
