Bacon Fried Shrimp with Pepper Jack Cheese

Bacon Fried Shrimp

The Best Bacon Fried Shrimp

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!

Also, if you like this Bacon Fried Shrimp recipe, be sure to check out some of my other Prawn recipes like, Thai Red Curry Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi and Firecracker Shrimp, which is a lot like Bang bang shrimp if you’ve ever heard of it.  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.  So be sure to check them out.

Pulled Pork Fries

These Pulled Pork Fries are amazing. You can go with just about any roast recipe you want but I highly recommend you use 1 of 2 of my recipes; Kalua Pork Roast or my Oven Baked Ribs; Kalua, of course, being a tender Hawaiian style pulled pork and the Oven Baked Ribs being a Steak House style rib with Cumin.

These Fries are made fresh from medium sized Russet Potatoes but if you’re feeling lazy, don’t hesitate to bake or fry up a frozen bag of french fries.  I also add a sliced sauteed onion to the pulled pork for a little more flavor and I cover the french fries with Colby Jack Cheese just before I smother with the pork and onions.  And after everything is plated, I like to top the whole thing off with a Spicy Mayo Fry Sauce I’ve included in the ingredients below.

If you’re interested in other French Fry recipes, you should really look into my Lomo Saltado recipe.  It’s a Peruvian dish with seasoned and seared steak, sauteed onions, peppers and french fries.  If you’ve never seen this recipe I highly recommend you take a look at it.

Pulled Pork Fries Ingredients:

4 Russet Potatoes, sliced
1 Kalua Pork Roast or Rack of Ribs
1 Onion, sliced
1 tbsp Fresh Parsly, chopped
Salt to taste

Spicy Fry Sauce
1/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 tbsp Horse Raddish
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

Barbecue Spare Ribs – P.F. Chang’s Barbecue Sauce

Youtube Barbecue Ribs pf changs style

This Barbecue Spare Ribs recipe is fall off the bone tender and absolutely delicious.  The best part is, you can use any barbecue sauce you want and still get the same results.  So if you’ve already got a favorite recipe you like to whip up or one that is already bottled, you can skip the barbecue sauce preparation altogether.  Just a rack of ribs and a cup of sauce is all you’re going to need to bake these ribs to perfection.

The secret lies in the slow and low method.  This recipe takes a total of 3 hours from beginning to end but it is worth it.  As you can see in my video recipe tutorial, the meat will just melt in your mouth.  And as far as P.F. Chang’s recipe is concerned, the truth is, this recipe is better and I say that for two reasons.  First, Chang’s doesn’t season their ribs; just a barbecue sauce marinade for 24 hours. Second, they cook their ribs in half the time I’m recommending and at a higher temperature, so the ribs aren’t as tender.  That being said, I highly suggest that you use this slow and low method if you want the best results.

Barbecue Spare Ribs Ingredients:

1 rack Spare Ribs
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1 tbsp Seafood Boil Seasoning (Zatarains, Slap Ya Mama or Old Bay), optional
