    Kristi I love the Peruvian Gold sauce. I picked some up a while back at my go to for fresh seafood. That and a couple others really work well with shrimp and seafood in general. Have you tried Ala Moana Coconut & Mango sauce or A Frame Datil sauce?  
    The color you got here was perfect!  Did the shrimp get overdone at all for you on these. I tried my hand at it and with extra large shrimp or large shrimp it seemed to crisp the bacon and shrimp with decent timing on L&S. I wanted to try raised direct at 300℉-350℉ but, was concerned it would overcook the shrimp before the bacon finished. Thoughts... Have you tried it that way?

  • Thanks, Everyone! 

    NPHuskerFL:  I haven't tried them at a higher temp or raised direct, but I think if you pre-cook your bacon a little it will work just fine.  I prefer the taste and texture of the jalapeños when I cook them L&S.  Knock on wood, the shrimp haven't overcooked yet but I always use the largest shrimp I can find.  
    Hmm, I wonder if the bacon sorta protects the shrimp? 

    I haven't tried those sauces -- I'll look them up! I've had Tropical Pepper Co. Mango Coconut sauce... maybe similar?   I love the Peruvian Gold, too!  I should warn you, I put it on Swordfish last week... I'll never do that again! :o  It's the only thing I found that it didn't work on. haha :)

    Duly noted on the Swordfish. :wink: 
    And ya the bacon might actually help shield the shrimp. +1 on the get the largest shrimp available (prefer fresh caught personally).
