When I first had Bacon Fried Shrimp, all I could do was melt into myself with pleasure. I remember my head tilting back with my eyes closed as that bacon and shrimp exploded with flavor with each bite. Oh… and did I mention the Pepper Jack Cheese? Wow! Each one of these prawns is stuffed with cheese before they’re wrapped with an entire piece of bacon, then they are each seasoned with black ground pepper before they’re fried to perfection.
Grilling Bacon Fried Shrimp
Obviously this recipe is called, “Bacon Fried Shrimp” but don’t let that discourage you from taking these pork prawns to the grill. These are perfect for barbecue’s and parties. Technically you could even bake them if you’re little heart ever so desired. It doesn’t really matter. Just make sure, like any pork product, it’s cooked thoroughly and all the way through. Oh, and just for kicks, I whipped up a Spicy Mayo Dipping Sauce I really think you’re going to like. It really compliments the pa-pa-POW of the Shrimp!

I have a huge list of other Shrimp recipes if you want to seek them out or look up my Shrimp Recipes playlist on YouTube. These were just some of the ones I posted with this video.

Trout Amandine is a classic recipe and it just so happens that I live near one of the most popular fly fishing spots in the nation. You can pull Rainbow, Browns and Cut Throat Trout from several different rivers that are only minutes away from my house. And, believe me, this recipe will dress to impress any fan of any of those fish. I’d even dare say that the preparation of this fish can be easily done with Salmon too; at least the way I do it.
Prepare Trout Amandine
For Trout Amandine, I’ll cut and slice a whole cleaned fish, then marinate it in buttermilk, season with salt and pepper, then stuff it with lemon slices and a seafood medley. At this point you can choose to grill, bake or pan fry the fish. In this video recipe, I take it to the grill but you can do what you prefer. After I cook for 5 minutes, I’ll carefully flip the fish over and prepare the topping which consists of fresh ground Almonds, butter, Amaretto and squeeze from a fresh lemon. I brown the almonds in a pan with some melted butter just before I add the Amaretto and lemon juice and cook over medium low heat till it lightly caramelizes. By then it’s time to pull the Trout off the grill and smother with the caramelized sauce.
These Honey Chipotle chicken Wings are, by far, the best wings I have ever had. They are sweet and savory, they are crispy and spicy yet incredibly tender and juicy on the inside. They have best flavor of just about any barbecue sauce and we’ll talk about the secret to that in just a minute. But I definitely think that the grilling definitely takes this recipe to a whole new level. But don’t let that scare you if you don’t have a grill. I think these spicy buffalo style wings would still be absolutely fantastic fried in oil or baked in the oven.
Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Sauce
This Chicken Wing Sauce is phenomenal. I mean it. I’t fantastic. My secret for this recipe is definitely in the sauce. I use Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce to start, then I add a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce and a fresh clove of Garlic but it doesn’t end there. Since it’s got that pepper spice I balance it out with Tequila and Lime. Now, of course, the Tequila is optional but the lime is definitely essential because it adds that Mexican style flavor everyone loves in their Mexican food. But if you’re not shy, I highly recommend following this recipe to a “T” and add that Tequila. It takes this Honey Chipotle Chicken Wing Sauce to whole new level.
