Ingredients

16 jumbo shrimp, tails on, peeled, deveined and butterflied

2 jalapenos, seeded and cut into thin strips 

8 ounces thin bacon slices, cut in half 

1 stick (8 tablespoons) salted butter 

1 clove garlic, pressed 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Hot sauce, as needed

Directions

Special equipment:
16 toothpicks, soaked in water
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spread out 1 shrimp and place 2 or 3 jalapeno strips in the center. Bring up the sides of the shrimp and wrap half a slice of bacon around it somewhat tightly. Secure with a toothpick (soaked in water) and place on a broiler drip pan. Repeat with the remaining shrimp, jalapenos and bacon.
  3. Melt the butter in a small pan and combine with the garlic and some salt, pepper and hot sauce. Brush the mixture all over the shrimp. Roast the shrimp until the bacon is cooked and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.
