Simple Bacon & Jalapeño Wrapped Shrimp Recipe

Bacon makes the world go round and if you wrap it around shrimp and jalapeño then you have a very rounded world. Shrimp is tasty and it makes me very happy to add jalapeño to this recipe. It’s just one big, happy, well-rounded wrap.

Ahh! These babies are good and will have you craving them time and time again.

Some call them Shrimp Diablos, but I call them what they are “Bacon-Jalapeño Wrapped Shrimp”. They are divine! Oh so delicious!

This is a recipe I have been making for quite some time and have started making it with my fourteen-year-old. I will get everything ready to go (i.e., cut and remove seeds from jalapeños, veggies, etc.) and set up an assembly line of sorts while Jace peels and deveins the shrimp (aka the icky part), passes to me to wrap and season.

We have a system.

Ok, enough with my bad jokes and rounded worlds let’s make some bacon jalapeño shrimp, and vegetable kabobs.

You ready for this?

Here we go!

Bacon & JalapeÑo Wrapped Shrimp Ingredients:

  • 20 jumbo raw shrimp – peel and deveine (increase, decrease to serving size. Either way, there will NOT be any left.)
  • Equally thin bacon (may need to be cut in two depending on shrimp size)
  • 10-15 large jalapeños or equal number to shrimp if not very large (cut these in quarters or halves)
  • Robust Italian dressing
  • Tony Chachere Cajun seasoning

INSTRUCTIONS to make Bacon & JalapeÑo Wrapped Shrimp

Step 1

Have 14-year-old son scrub his hands and peel and devein shrimp. Rinse.

Step 2

Cut jalapenos in three parts or halves depending on the size of the shrimp.

Step 3

Place shrimp in jalapeno.

Step 4

Wrap in bacon.

Step 5

Repeat until all shrimp are wrapped in jalapeno and bacon.

Step 6

Place bacon-jalapeño wrapped shrimp on skewers on a foil-covered cookie sheet.

Step 7

Cover with Italian dressing.

Step 8

Season with Tony Chachere Cajun Seasoning by liberally pouring over wrapped shrimp.

Directions to make Veggie Kabobs

Step 1

Place assorted vegetables (zucchini, cherry tomatoes, squash, purple onion and mushroom) on skewers.

Step 2

Cover with Italian dressing and more Tony Chachere Cajun seasoning if desired.

Step 3

Spray the grill with cooking spray and cook Bacon-Jalapeño Wrapped Shrimp until the bacon is done and the shrimp is pink.

I recommend using thin bacon or it will take too long to cook and then all sorts of things go wrong. Charcoaled shrimp and grill fires just to name a few.

Step 4

Cook veggies until done or they begin to shrivel up.

How to Serve Bacon & JalapeÑo Wrapped shrimp
