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!
