Shrimp Stuffed Sweet Peppers

One of the most visited posts on my site is about Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos.  It’s gone crazy on Pinterest, on StumbleUpon, on Facebook, on Twitter.  It’s a crowd pleaser and the men love it as much as the women.

It’s a party food.  A shareable snack.  it offers meat and heat and it’s poppable.

These Shrimp Stuffed Sweet Peppers are going to likely break that new record.

Why?

Because these are easier.  Plus, hello?  They are filled with shrimp, and any time you can add shrimp it’s always going to be an improvement, in my opinion.

These flavorful bites of summer or fall, or winter, whenever!) came about because once again, I am an ambassador for SeaPak.  I’m sure you’ve seen them – the Shrimp folks hanging out in the freezer section of your grocery store.  And while it’s an amazing gig, getting to work for a company you admire and love, I’m going to tell you a secret:

Coming up with recipes for pre-packaged and ready to go shrimp meals in a new and different ways is a bit challenging.

You see, take the Shrimp Scampi from SeaPak for example.  It’s fantastic.  You can just pop it in the microwave, then pour the finished product over some nice white rice or pasta, and you are good to go.  Done. It’s weekend tasting food on a Wednesday if you want it.

But…I don’t get paid to open boxes and follow the instructions.  Oh, no, I am here to give you ideas that you maybe hadn’t thought of.

Give them a try, and let us know what you think.  Me?  I think you’re gonna love them.
