Reviews forBacon-Wrapped Shrimp
"This recipe is almost the same as one in my hot air fryer cookbook. I have made it several times in my fryer and it's really fantastic. Mine just uses a small cube of monterrey jack cheese with a slice of pepper and a shrimp,wrapped in bacon.instead of the dressing used here. It's less messy and easier,and tastes great! I will try Karen's idea of using prosciutto too! Great party snack food and you can make ahead and cook when ready."
"Instead of bacon, I use prosciutto. It is thinner providing for a tighter wrap. Also, less greasy! This appetizer is awesome!"
"This sounds really good! & best of all, I have all the ingredients on hand! I'll probably skip the Jalapenos, though, sprinkle with a bit of pepper & add pineapple!"
"I added a piece of sliced water chestnut. The "crunch" added extra to this base.I also left some jalapeno membrane on some of the pieces-wow!"
"How can you go wrong with shrimp and bacon. I love the idea of adding a slice of jalapeno to it, wonderful!!!! I love making appetizers and this is just another one that I will add to my recipe files. Thank you!!"
"really good flavor-kind of messy to prepare"
"Can these be frozen?"
