Joe's Crab Shack Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

20 medium raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed
1 recipe Joe's Crab Shack Seafood Stuffing
20 jalapeno slices
2 slices Monterey jack cheese, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
20 slices uncooked bacon

Slice down middle the opposite site you deveined. Lay shrimp cut side up and press 1 tablespoon Joe's Crab Shack Seafood Stuffing into each shrimp cut. Lay a slice of jalapeno and a piece of cheese over the stuffing. Wrap each stuffed shrimp in a slice of bacon. Thread 5 shrimp on a bamboo skewer; repeat 3 times. Grill shrimp over a medium flame for 5-7 minutes on both sides.

Notes:  You can omit the stuffing, jalapenos and cheese in this recipe to make plain bacon wrapped shrimp and scallops. (Sprinkle on any type of seasoning you like.).  Don't forget to soak the skewers in water to prevent them from burning on the grill.
