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.

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.

Yum! Some of both please! I have never used (edit for autocorrect) Tajin on shrimp but that looks amazing. There was just a NYT writeup about Tajin with some good ideas too. Going to have to have a theme night!

that bacon wrapped shrimp looks delicious.  Did the cheddar cheese overpower the shrimp?

Thank you Bgosnell. No the cheddar didn't overpower the shrimp. the first flavor you get is the bacon followed by the shrimp and chile. The cheese taste is in there but only slightly.

We tried the Tajin shrimp tonight. So easy, really a flavor pop. I think I would use a little less seasoning next time, but yum! Enjoyed with corn from the grill seasoned with Tajin and lime juice and prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

      Waiting, waiting, waiting for the Kamado Big Joe to arrive. Nothing.
       
      Welp, expecting friends from out of town this weekend and can wait no longer. So, I picked up a Weber Summit Charcoal grill (kamado style) along with a Pit Viper fan. Once the Big Joe arrives I'll have two Kamados!
       
      Anyhow, I tried the new Fireboard 2 Drive on this grill along with a Pit Viper fan for a hot smoked pork belly session.

      I was in a bit of a rush to get things going so I used the fan to stoke the coals up to temperature with a target of 225F. With the Weber bottom vent fully closed and the top vent 1/4 open, the temperature initially overshot about 15 degrees. I brought the temperature down by opening the lid briefly when adding the belly and to make other adjustments (the dips in the graph).
       
      Once things were settled in, though, the temperature was regulated on the order of tenths of a degree around the 225F target . That's pretty awesome.
       
      Sitting at the computer typing emails and monitoring the temperatures on a browser. With the Fireboard 2 Drive and the kamado, this set-up has better performance and regulation than our kitchen oven.

      I got Irving Farms to cut for me two Berkshire side pork roasts to be in range of 1.39 to 1.58 kg.  I let them know I was going to use it for making bacon so they removed skin for me and sold for same price I was quoted.    I am following basic recipe with same tile in book Project Smoke.   For sugar portion I used maple sugar and cure was FS1, and instead of using ziplock bags I vacuum sealed each pork side side after applying brine to each side and placed remaining brine into each bag and distributed it before sealing.    Once curing done in 6 days, I will rinse well with water, pat dry and then air dry in refrigerator for 12 hours and then I will smoke for 4 hours.   I meantime I and turning over at least twice every day.

      With the wife and I on the Weight Watchers plan, I’ve been avoiding some of my favorite Mexican dishes. Now that I think about it, this really isn’t necessary if I’m carefully what I choose and how I prepare the dishes. Take fajitas for example. A protein, seasoning and some veggies. Made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and not much oil the fajitas themselves are only 1 point per serving. I can live with a diet that includes chicken fajitas, can’t you? Well, that leads me to the sides. Made carefully many of the sides are 0 to only 2 points per serving. Follow along with me and I’ll show you how I prepared everything.
       
      The night before I mixed up some blue corn masa to make up some tortillas. (This is the one item I couldn’t cheat on to lower the point value. 3 tortillas = 5 points)

       
      I also got out the onion and bell peppers to cut up

       
      and mixed up the fajitas seasoning.
       
       
      Ingredients:
      1/2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
      1 tsp. ground cumin
      1 tsp. smoked paprika
      1 tsp. garlic powder
      1/2 tsp. onion powder
      1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
      1/4 tsp. black pepper
      1/2 tsp. kosher salt to taste
      1/4 tsp. Chipotle pepper                                                                                                                  1/4 tsp. Oregano         
       
      The next day started out by making a batch of my Mexican rice. (1 Point per serving) Started out by sautéing the veggies.

      I measured out 2 cups of Brown rice, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 tbsp. of OO and put this in the rice maker. I now added 1 cup of Clamato Picante juice and 3 cups of chicken stock.

      Next, I added the veggies to the pot.

      I closed the lid and pressed start. Here are the results.

      Next up was the Guacamole. (2 points per serving) Cut up 1 medium Hass avocado.

      Now I added 1 tbsp. of light mayo, some granulated garlic, 5 heaping tbsp. of my Pico de Gallo, some fresh squeezed lime juice and mixed this up and covered.

      Next up were some frijoles. I sautéed some diced onion, 1/2 a jalapeno, some bell pepper and corn and then added two kinds of black beans. (0 points per serving)

      I now got out 3 boneless skinless breasts and coated them with the fajitas seasoning.

      I took them and the cut-up veggies out to my gas grill side burner.

      Now I needed to make the tortillas, so I rolled up 6 balls of masa about the size of a golf ball. I flatted them a little to make them easier to press out.

      I was some issues with the masa sticking to the press so had to experiment with dusting the bottom with some of the blue core masa.

      I heated them up on a C.I. griddle, very lightly sprayed with some OO.

      Next I sprayed my 12” Camp Chef C.I. skillet with some OO. After it was heated it up I put the 3 breast in and cooked them for 8 minutes per side.

       

       

      Once they were cooked I removed them to a cutting board and was left with the fond.

      I dumped in the onions and bell peppers and let them start to cook.

      While them were cooking I sliced up the chicken.

      Now I dumped in the chicken

      and stirred it in and continued to cook until the veggies had soften.

      Now I brought it all in and plated it up with a Modelo Negra.

       

       

       

      Here is a shot once I took it inside to eat.

      Gratuitous side shot close ups.

       

      OMG!!! This was so delicious!

      My wife and I have been cooped up in our house for 2 weeks so we decided to take a drive just to get out. We drove down to Downtown San Diego to see what things were like and found a virtual ghost town.  This video shows us driving up 5th in the Gaslamp District. Normally there would be thousands of people on the sidewalks and bumper to bumper traffic. Pretty surreal!
