1 lb. Applewood smoked bacon strips, cut in half
2 lbs. jumbo shrimp, deveined and butterflied
1 lb. lobster tail meat and/or lump crabmeat, cooked and chopped
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 medium yellow pepper, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
¼ cup mayonnaise
Tablespoon horseradish mustard
1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon Country Bob’s Seasoning Salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
1 cup cheese crackers, crushed
This shrimp can be served as an appetizer or entrée. Depending on your seafood preference you can mix or match your favorites. We used both lobster and crab for a rich and delicious combination. Plus, it’s easy to make ahead of time and refrigerate until you’re ready to grill.
Place seafood in a large bowl, season with salt & pepper. Use a large cast iron skillet to mix melted butter, sauté onion, peppers and garlic. Mix until soft. Cool, and then add to seafood.
Lightly blend in remaining ingredients, except shrimp. Mound 1-2 tablespoons stuffing mixture onto shrimp.
Wrap with 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with toothpick. Brush with more Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce.
Keep an eye on the shrimp so you don’t overcook them. You’ll cook them for about 20 minutes. Keep the Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce bottle handy for dipping!
