Shrimp, Bacon & Corn

Tried a new recipe last week and hit a homerun. As are most of the things I make it was super easy and whadduyaknow includes bacon!

Shrimp with Bacon & Corn

8 slices bacon
1 1b of shrimp
3 ears fresh corn
1 chopped tomato
1 chopped green pepper
1 diced onion
Blackening Seasoning
Canola Oil
Salt & Pepper
1/2 - 1 cup Heavy Cream
Fresh chives - chopped

Rinse shrimp - pat dry. Salt and Pepper them. Saute in canola oil until golden and firm. Remove from pan. Use scissors and cut up bacon into little bite size pieces of bacon heaven. Cook bacon until crisp. Add tomatoes, pepper and onion. Cook until vegetables are soft. Take kernels off of corn cobs and mix corn, cream and blackening seasoning in separate bowl. Then add to pan with bacon and vegetables. Reduce heat and add more cream and blackening seasoning if needed. Top with chives.

Add shrimp back in at the very end but when you plate it - try and get the little buggers to sit on top of the sauce. 

I knew the kids wouldn't eat the sauce with the shrimp so I sauted theirs in a little butter and garlic. Besides, it was more for Daddy and I. I served it with a salad and called it a day. Deeeelish.
