I recently entered this in the 101 Appetizers contest and this won grand prize!

We live right on the ocean here in Florida and have friends that shrimp and are generous with their catch.
I have to come up with new ways to fix shrimp.
The first time I saw a freshly caught shrimp, I freaked, because they truely are a homely little critter. I got over that real quick though!

How to Make 2 Cheese Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre cook the bacon slightly in the microwave for maybe 50 seconds. You want to do this step so the bacon and shrimp cook the same length of time,
  2. Put paper towels on a plate, single layer of bacon, cover with paper towels. Repeat until all bacon is pre cooked.
  3. Peel and devein shrimp, or buy them that way.
  4. Put blue cheese crumbles in a small bowl
  5. In the space the shrimp was deveined, put a rounded teaspoon of cream cheese in. The individual packets work well here, cut the end off and you have a mini piping bag.
  6. Dip the filled shrimp, cream cheese side down into the blue cheese crumbles, the blue cheese will stick to the cream cheese.
  7. Wrap each shrimp in a slice of bacon, secure with a toothpick, and place in a single layer on a large platter. Repeat for all shrimp.
  8. Sprinkle hot sauce over all, sprinkle with dill weed.
  9. Deep fat fry in small batches until golden, maybe 4 minutes per batch.
  10. Seve with prepared Ranch or Blue cheese dressing.
