Puff Pastry-Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp
1 package (5.2 ounces) garlic & herb spreadable cheese, softened
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
18 fresh jumbo shrimp (about 1 pound), peeled with tail left on, deveined and butterflied
1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
1) Heat the oven to 400°F.
2) Stir the cheese, parsley and bacon in a medium bowl. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cheese mixture down the center of each shrimp. Fold the sides of the shrimp over the filling.
3) Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry sheet crosswise into 18 (1/2-inch wide) strips. Starting at the top, wind 1 pastry strip around 1 shrimp, slightly overlapping the pastry and ending just before the tail. Repeat with the remaining pastry strips and shrimp. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
4) Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.

(I can’t find online ordering information for this product yet but I believe it’s available at Whole Foods, maybe also at similar stores? If I find a way to order online I’ll edit this post. -Fox)
Actually, ‘faux shrimp’ is totally a thing! It’s a meat substitute for veg*ns, and I’ve never tried it, but as I imagine you probably shouldn’t mess around with a food allergy like that, I’ll see if I can dig up a few products, maybe even some recipes for you!
Also, kiwa hirsuta are ADORABLE! *hugs you*
