Shrimp with Canadian Bacon & Roasted Jalapeños

This tasty little bite is an act of love.  My husband loves shrimp and jalapeños.  What man doesn't love bacon?

I traded typical bacon for Canadian bacon to cut down on the saturated fat.  To tell you the truth I ate five of these before I realized it.  They were super easy to prepare.  It was also easy to receive the *thank-you* hug from my husband.

Shrimp with Canadian Bacon & Roasted Jalapeños

15 fresh jalapeños, cut in half with seeds and ribs removed
1 TBS of olive oil
1 1b of large raw shrimp (21-30 count), cleaned with tails removed
8oz of sliced Canadian bacon

Toss the jalapeño halves with the olive oil.  Roast in a 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until soft and just starting to caramelize on the edges.  Slice the Canadian bacon into 3/4' strips.  let the jalapeños cool until  you are able to handle them.  Stack a jalapeño half on a slice of bacon.  Then wrap both around the body of one shrimp and secure with a toothpick.  Now, 29 more to go!  Place all the shrimp on a sheet pan.  Bake for about 10 minutes in a 425degree oven or just until the shrimp are pink.  Place on a serving tray.  Enjoy!
