Bacon Wrapped Crab Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp
~ Wanda ~
I had these 25 yrs ago in Ensenada, Mexico for my brother-in-law’s b-day and we finally got around to preparing them at home. They were as tasty as I remembered them to be!!
My sister lives in San Diego so the 3 of use drove down to Ensenada for Bill’s birthday because they wanted lobster… since lobster is not my favorite seafood I chose the shrimp stuffed with crab and wrapped in bacon….I’m sure we had a few Mexican beers to go with it and I would guess Dos XX….Yes it was at a restaurant but that’s asking a lot for me to remember the name…I am over 40 remember??
It is right on the beach and it was extremely cheap for a fresh seafood dinner…..It was great fun and since I grew up in MN it was the best seafood I had ever had!!!! Bullheads don’t count as seafood…..
