Ingredients
  • 16 extra-large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 jalapeño chile, stem removed, seeded, and cut lengthwise into 16 thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 bacon slices, halved lengthwise
Instructions
  1. Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium. Cut a long 1/4-inch-deep slit in the inner curve of each shrimp; insert 1 jalapeño strip. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Wrap each shrimp tightly with 1 bacon piece. Set on a plate, seam sides down.

  2. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp, seam sides down, in the hot skillet, and cook, turning occasionally, until the bacon is crisp and the shrimp are just cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.
