Made some bacon wrapped shrimp with cheese then was asked to write it up.  If you notice in the pic I left the heads and tails on. Next time the heads and tails gotta go. The cream cheese goes everywhere. Keep reading


Anyways, these Spanish Flies are based on next time without heads or tails. Made for one the total is 8. You could split it as an appetizer or garnish for a grand finale main dish. These were big boy shrimps also known as jumbo. I can't say a top shrimp recipe but it would make a nice appetizer minus heads and tails. Personally I'm spoiled rotten for bacon wrapped shrimp on the grill.

Nuts-n-Bolts

  • 16 oz shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 8 oz bacon
  • 8 oz jalapeno =s 4 lg total
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 7 oz mango diced, =s 1 mango
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 tbs Cottonmouth
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 oz Dirtyleg optional

The Build

  1. Sprinkle Cottonmouth all over the shrimp.
  2. Cut caps off jalapenos and slice each one long ways to get 2 halves.
  3. De-seed the jalapeno halves. I just use a spoon and scrap'em out. Wash under water to make it mild.
  4. In a separate bowl add the cream cheese, mango, cilantro, and salt. The mango should be about 1/4" squared. If you bought frozen they are about 1" squared. If that's the case just give them a rough mash instead of cutting each cube.
  5. Mix all above well and lets prep the bacon wrapped shrimp.

  6. Take about 2 tbs of the cream cheese mix and pack in the jalapeno halves.
  7. Take a shrimp and lay one in each jalapeno long ways. You can push a little down to seat it in the cream cheese.
  8. Get a grate on top of a aluminum foil cookie sheet.
  9. Heat oven to 350
  10. Lay out a strip of bacon and from the large end of the jalapeno roll the bacon down it. Like a candy can overlapping a frog's hair to cover whole pepper.
  11. If you need a toothpick to pin the bacon down do it now.
  12. Set each bacon wrapped shrimp with cheese on the grate and place in oven for 30 minutes.
  13. At 30 pull from oven and brush Dirtyleg all over.
  14. Place back in oven for an additional 15 minutes. By this time the bacon should be ready. If not go for another 10 minutes until it’s at your perfect color.

Notes

You can grill. Heck yeah! The thinner cheap bacon cooks easier while thick bacon can take too long and over do the shrimp.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
