Thats right. It's THAT time of the year, to figure out how to wow everyone with fingerfood that packs a punch.
Superbowl food should be tasty and be made on a grill to capture that gritty, smoky, MANLY flavor.
How about Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp - which would do really well with beer from a keg or a juicy glass of Syrah.
24 count, cleaned, shrimp tails
1 can sliced jalapenos, drained
1 package thin cut bacon, sliced in half (to create 3-4 inch wide slices)
toothpicks or skewers
Fire up your grill and bring the temperature up to 350 degree's, roughly.
Meanwhile, tuck a jalapeno into a shrimp tail and wrap them together in bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with all 24 shrimp.
Smoke on your barbecue until bacon is crispy on the outside and transfer to a plate. Bring inside and get ready for compliments and orders for more shrimp!
Felice Super Bowl!
