The Shrimp Brochette Was A Big Hit!

I offered to bring the appetizer to my neighbors Super Bowl party and decided to try shrimp brochette. I borrowed heavily from previous posts found in the archives on shrimp.[p]The shrimp was to be stuffed with a small slice of Jalapeno and pepper jack cheese and then wrapped in bacon for grilling.[p]I used one pound of shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails on. It was about 30 count. I would recommend larger shrimp for this next time but it worked out ok. For the marinade, I used J. Appledog's Barking Shrimp recipe (thanks Julie). Marinade about an hour.[p]I cut fresh jalapeno into thin, long slices (no seeds) and did the same with pepper jack cheese. Then I pre-cooked the bacon about 2/3 done. To stuff the shrimp, I made a cut all along the back of each shrimp. I put one slice each of the jalapeno and cheese in the cut and used a half slice of bacon to wrap the shrimp. Hold it together with a toothpick. Now it's ready for the BGE.[p]Got temp to 400 degrees, maybe even higher. I used the "fish grid". Cooked about 2 minutes each side. Next time, might try it at 375 temp instead because it cooked almost faster than I could get them all turned. Anyway, they turned out great. The bacon was crisp and the shrimp was bursting with flavor.[p]Like I said, this cook was the result of several previous posts by others: Thanks! Since the people who ate it kept asking for my "recipe", I thought I would share the results with you.[p]Bob[p]

    WudEyeDoo,[p]That sounds delicious. I've been wanting to cook shrimp on the grill ever since I saw the BGE video. Can you give me the recipe for J. Appledog's Barking Shrimp recipe? And also, did you cook it direct in the fish grid?

  • DavidR,
    Here is Mrs. Dog's Barking Shrimp recipe:[p]1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1 tbsp. Mrs. Dog's Jamaican Jerk Marinade or Mrs. Dog's Dangerously Hot Pepper Sauce
    A big squeeze of lime juice
    A splash of dark rum[p]Mix and marinade up to one hour
    grill, using direct heat or saute in a little butter or oil until pink and curled.[p]I did grill it direct, by the way.
