Step 1

Preheat oven broiler.

Step 2

Wash the shrimp and pat them dry. Butterfly shrimp by cutting lengthwise along the back—don't cut all the way through, leaving the tail section intact.

Step 3

Grate the cheese and mix with jalapeño pepper.

Step 4

Cut each piece of bacon in half.

Step 5

Fill the open section of each shrimp with about 1 teaspoon cheese mix. Wrap each shrimp with a piece of bacon, and secure with a wooden pick.

Step 6

Place shrimp on a broiler pan and broil until bacon is crisp. Turn the shrimp and broil until bacon is done. About 10 minutes or less, total.

Step 7

Serve hot.

MMmmmmm...Good!! I loved the little bit of heat from the jalapenos, along with the delicious flavors from the Asiago cheese and oh that yummy bacon was extra good under the broiler! I wouldn't hesitate to make these for a meal or appetizer any time at all...Thank you Mikekey for this great one!! Linda
