Jalapeño Shrimp Poppers was orginally inspired for a seafood holiday appetizer menu, but we quickly realized why shelve these scrumptious little bites for only December, they can be a fan favorite all year long.

So if you’re looking for a game winning appetizer for the Super Bowl or any other sporting event, this will quickly move up the list to a fan favorite.   They’re a simple yet spicy and flavorful appetizer.  It’s sure to be a win any time of the year.

You’ll get a serving of minerals with the shrimp but you’ll also get warm savory bacon and ooey-gooey cheese.


The key to great shrimp is to cook it with the tails on, and once complete, remove and discard the tails.  The tails add an extra level of flavor when cooked.  Also, shrimp cooks quickly, so be sure to only cook your shrimp 2-3 minutes per side.  This will achieve a perfect dish.

Shrimp is incredibly versatile and can be seared, speared for a kabob, and boiled.  It packs a serious punch of vitamins and minerals including selenium, choline, and vitamin B12. It also contains good amounts of niacin, zinc, vitamin E, and vitamin B6. What’s more, shrimp contain antioxidants like astaxanthin, which reduces inflammation.
