About this recipe: These prawns make wonderful finger food. Serve them at your next informal dinner party. Prawns are stuffed with jalapeno pepper, then wrapped in bacon and fried to perfection.
I baked ours, with the exception of cholesterol, I think I've managed to make this MUCH healthier First, I par-baked TURKEY bacon in half-slices. This reduces both sodium AND fat and left the bacon pliable enough to wrap. Then, I cleaned & roasted 10 FRESH jalapenos in a drizzle of olive oil & a pinch of sea salt for about 10 minutes. Again, a reduction of sodium AND leaving nutrition in the pepper. Then, I wrapped about a 1/3 of each jalapeno & a half-slice of bacon around each shrimp & secured with a toothpick. I baked them at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. In addition, I prepared an "eye-balled" provolone cheese sauce for dipping. YUMMMMM! - 15 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were very good but we did grill instead of deep-fry ours. The tastes were great!! - 27 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband and I have friends that own a very reputed Chinese restaurant (they come from China, actually) that we love going to. They serve this there and I've been trying to get the recipe for ages. Now, I'll finally be able to make this at home. Thanks for sharing! - 25 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
