Shrimp en Brochette

What You Need

2 lb. large shrimp

Monterey Jack cheese

3 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and julienned

1 lb. bacon

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

Skewers

Step 1: Preheat the grill, set it on high heat and soak the skewers in water.

Step 2: Peel, de-vein and butterfly the shrimp.

Step 3: Take the jalapeño, de-seed and julienne them. Place one strip of jalapeño at the center of each shrimp and wrap the shrimp cloed with the bacon.

Step 4: Thread the bacon-wrapped shrimp onto the skewers. Pierce the shrimp once through the head and once through the tail. You can fit 6 shrimp on one skewer. Keep some space between the shrimp so that the bacon can cook well.

Step 5: Season both sides of the shrimp with the Cajun seasoning.

Step 6: Brush the grill grate lightly with oil. 

Step 7: Place the skewers on the grill and let them cook for 2-3 minutes on one side. 

Step 8: Turn the skewers and place cheese slices over the shrimp. Cook until the bacon becomes brown and the cheese melts.

Step 9: Remove the skewers from the grill. Be careful not to burn your hand.

Step 10: Pull out the shrimp from the skewers, serve on a platter, and enjoy!
