One of the first dishes I ever was really proud of were jalapeno-stuffed shrimp, wrapped in bacon, and grilled with BBQ sauce. I decided to forgo the bacon tonight, but these were still pretty tasty! Feel free to take an assist from the grocery store and use a bottle.
Bbq and Jalapeno Shrimp
Serves: 1 Time: 20 minutes Difficulty: Just be careful slicing the jalapenos!
- 6 shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1/2 jalapeno, cut into thin slices
- 1/4 c. ketchup
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 T. grated onion
- 1 T. apple cider vinegar
- 1 T. maple syrup
- dash Worstershire
- dash hot sauce
- salt, pepper, oil
Carefully stuff the jalapenos into the back of the shrimp. Season them with salt and pepper.
Combine the next seven ingredients in a sauce pan and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Heat 1 T. of oil in a pan. Add the shrimp and cook them for one minute on the first side, then turn them and baste them with the sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes, turn again, and baste the original side of the shrimp with the remaining sauce.
