It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Lazy shrimp

henapplehenapple Posts: 10,896
Wanted to do some fancy stuffed shrimp. Bought 15 jumbo and got home, got busy, got lazy. Peeled, opened, stuffed with Laughing Cow swiss cream cheese and candied jalapeños(thanks Mickey). Wrapped in bacon. Indirect till crispy. Really simple, really good. The jalapeños gave a sweet entrance with a small kick goodbye. My son and I hunkered over the egg table and scarfed. Bad pic... New camera soon.

    MCN,

    My wife likes shrimp and can eat a little, but she's more allergic to crab and lobster.  Breaks my heart.

    Shrimp cooks too fast to be wrapped in bacon IMO.  Shrimp and other shellfish loose their taste when overcooked - it can be eaten raw without hurting you.

    They look and sound great...as far as I'm concerned any time you stuff meat with anything and wrap it in bacon the cook falls squarely in the "fancy" category, not the lazy one :).  Lazy is tossing the shrimp on the grill.  Nothing wrong with that either though!


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    Whenever Jake and I get the house to ourselves I try to fatten us up. The shrimp was a lunch snack before the ribs dinner. The people I like to see smiling while eating is my family. If you egg something and your family likes it.... That's all that matters.

    One of my buddies told her the vein wasn't a blood vein and now she's all freaked out. Sorry to hear about your wife

    He's right.  The top "vein" is the digestive tract.  The bottom "vein" is the nerve.  I always devein the digestive tract.

    I'll remember that when Jake and I are stuffing our faces... Especially when he says, "this is the best thing you've ever cooked". I'll think... Damn, tuna wouldn't approve.

    Was thinking the same thing

    Sorry you disagree, but i call BS on anyone who can "NOT" overcook shrimp that is wrapped in bacon -- then --- cooked indirect until crisp!  The reason i mentioned it above was not to put you down, but in hopes that others do not attempt this, since shrimp is not the cheapest product to buy.  I have caught shrimp for a living and know full well how to cook it.  Many here attempt to "pre cook" bacon in their attempts to get it crisp without overcooking other products.  I come here to help others, not mislead them.

    @henapple: sounds delicious! How did you "stuff" them with the Laughing Cow? Enquiring minds want to know.

    As far as overcooking the shrimp if wrapped in bacon, many witnesses will attest that it is possible to get the bacon nice and tasty without overcooking the shrimp - just ask the folks who scarfed down @Foghorn 's little pineapple bacon shrimp thingys at Salado (I was one of them).

    Sounds awesome!

    When I did stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp last week they were cooked perfectly and the only bad thing was I didn't make enough so I only got three..

    I need to get my hands on some candied jalapeños

    I have not wrapped many things in bacon just mainly when doin abts or scallops. The bacon seriously retards the cooking time for both of these and I can only imagine it would do the same for shrimp.

    Try this recipe for candied j's, easy to do. I have a feeling you can buy the jalapeno's in Denver. Had some great Texmex in Denver.

    I think my temp was 350 dome, indirect. Cali, I sliced the shrimp and just squeezed some in. I did wrap the bacon length wise instead of around. Tuna, obviously others disagree with you. Pappasitto's sells 4 stuffed shrimp for $20 and it's worth it. It's not what you said just the way you said it.

    Charlie Tuna said the same thing about my shrimp dish.  I always just assumed that he has a more sophisticated "shrimp palate" - or just likes his shrimp a little different.  Some folks like their steak rare, other like it more cooked.  He's not right or wrong, it is just his preference.  My dad taught me to only eat steak that is well-done.  I've worked my way to medium throughout my adult life.  My shrimp palate may evolve as a result of Charlie's comments in a way that will allow me to appreciate shrimp on a different level than I do now.  Charlie, if that happens, I thank you in advance.

    Gee....when I cook lazy shrimp, all I do is throw it in a grill pan with some simple seasoning. You lazy is more ambitious than mine. :D

    I've cooked bacon wrapped shrimp before. I like to pre-cook the bacon a bit in the microwave a bit first. If wrapped correctly, I think that the bacon sort of protects the shrimp from the heat a bit as it cooks.

    @henaple, the candied jalapenos, are they like a sweet bread and butter pickled jalepino with more sugar in a jar with the vinegar solution. i would like to try making them next batch of pickled peppers

    It's like I tell my guys... I don't care if you drink the paint and piss it on the walls. I'm only interested in the final result.

    My brother owned one of the biggest seafood restaurants in Florida, and i used to substitute for the salad chef during his vacations and time off.  One of my "prep jobs" was cooking shrimp for cold platers.  I would cook ten five pound(defrosted) boxes of shrimp at a time.  The method of cooking was foolproof, but required full attention, and a variation of sixty seconds ment dumping $400. of shrimp in the garbage.  I go in restaurants all the time and find they don't know how to cook shrimp.  Shrimp are not supposed to be "rubbery" AT ALL, but tender like fish.  Same with a scallop or lobster.  In both of these products, as they are overcooked, the true taste quickly disappears.  I also managed a large seafood store, that had a commercial steamer for steaming customer's seafood orders.  Custom steamed orders kept us busy, it allowed customers to carry their orders home and serve them warm, but not overcooked.

    That's impressive man.

    What kind of toilet paper do you use? Just curious on your technique, cause I wipe butt for a living and thought I might could help you perfect it. Everyone has a specialty, yours is seafood, mine is butt wiping.

    That was funny right there.  Not sure if I want to "like" that statement, but it was funny!
