Shrimp Stuffed Banana Peppers

My readers know how I love my 'poppers' - stuffed jalapeno peppers. Wrapped in bacon, breaded,stuffed with cheeses, seafood, chicken, baked, fried, grilled... any way I can get them!

I would make these with BOTH banana and jalapeno's. (I usually add cheeses to my stuffed peppers too - play with your recipes! Play with your food!)

Shrimp Stuffed Banana Peppers

Yellow Banana Peppers
shrimp - deveined, cleaned and pat dry
Bay Seasoning
bacon strips
oil for frying

Slice half way around the top of the pepper and a slice down the middle to clean out the seeds. Try to leave the top intact. Sprinkle Bay Seasoning on the shrimp and stuff the inside of the peppers. The amount you use depends on the size of your peppers. Wrap the pepper in bacon. Secure with a toothpick if you need to. Fry in 2 inches of hot oil. Drain on paper towels.Print Friendly and PDF
