TV Dinner: stuffed, bacon-wrapped shrimp

WWNY TV Dinner 11-15-19

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - This one goes back to our favorite chef’s days at the Park Avenue Club in Rochester.

Chris Manning showed Beth and Makenzie the secret of delicious stuffed, bacon-wrapped shrimp Friday morning. (Yes, it is delicious. We can testify to that - Chris left some in the newsroom.)

Here’s the recipe from Chef Manning.

Start with two cups of cream cheese. Let soften into medium-size mixing bowl.

Add half a cup of horseradish and two level cups of chopped, fresh spinach. Mix everything together. This is your stuffing.

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Place bacon on clean work surface. You should have between 16 and 20 peeled, de-veined shrimp, split with the tails on. Put a shrimp in the center of a piece of bacon, add a tablespoon of the stuffing, wrap the bacon around the shrimp and secure the whole thing with a toothpick.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the shrimp are firm and the bacon is browned. Drizzle with real maple syrup before serving.

As always, TV Dinner with Chef Manning is brought to you by the folks at Hearing Solutions.
