Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place shrimp in a glass bowl. Pour lime juice over shrimp. Stir in cilantro and garlic. Set aside.

  • While the shrimp is marinating, slice jalapeno peppers in half and remove seeds. Cut onion into chunks.

  • Tuck 1 shrimp into a jalapeno half. Wrap with 1 slice of bacon and thread onto a skewer. Repeat with remaining shrimp, jalapenos, and bacon, adding onion chunks in between every 2 or 3 shrimp.

  • Place skewers on the preheated grill. Cook, flipping every 4 to 5 minutes and basting with lime juice if desired, until shrimp are pink and bacon has browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using.

Jumbo shrimp may be substituted for large shrimp, if desired.

Leave some jalapeno seeds to add heat if you like it spicy.
