Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon With Jalapeno

This is one of the most simple yet delicious shrimp recipes! You can use it as an appetizer for parties, or served as a meal.  It is wonderful served with rice and a vegetable.  Just pop it under the broiler for a few minutes, then move it to the lower rack and set your over on 400 to cook the bottom..I don't like to mess with flipping them. The main thing is to watch them in the broiler so the bacon doesn't over cook. Your family will love this recipe.

 If you don't like heat simply omit the jalapeno. To have the pepper flavor with less heat removed the seeds or membranes in the peppers.  Be sure to wash your hands before you touch your face or eyes.  For less or no heat, you can slice the jalapeno peppers a little thinner or use green bell peppers cut to the size of sliced jalapeno.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4

1 lb of bacon (Normal sliced instead of Thick Sliced)
1 lb. raw shrimp
fresh jalapeno sliced (optional or use Green Bell Pepper cut to the size of jalapeno slices)

Clean and devein all the shrimp. Cut the bacon in half.  Lay one slice of jalapeno in the center of the bacon top with a shrimp, fold bacon over shrimp and put on foil wrapped cookie sheet seam side down.

Turn broiler on and set pan on second level from the top. Broil until just starting to brown, check often. Turn oven to 400 and move pan to bottom and cook for about 5 minutes more to help brown the bottom.
