Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp With Rosemary And Stilton

"The recipes here reflect my British roots, but not necessarily my family traditions," writes Mairi Morrison of London, England. "Although my mother is from Scotland and my father is from Northern Ireland, I grew up in Los Angeles, where our weeknight meals were typically American: spaghetti, tacos, and burgers. It wasn't until I moved to Europe that I became really interested in food. Here in London my social life is centered around the table. I really like this dish because it is typically British, and perfect for a rainy winter evening in London."

Type: Fish, Shellfish

Recipe Ingredients

20   Uncooked large shrimp - peeled, deveined
1 tablespoon 15mlChopped fresh rosemary - more or less
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
  Balsamic vinegar - as needed
10   Bacon slices - halved crosswise
  Crumbled Stilton cheese - as needed = (or other blue cheese)
