Shrimp Stuffed Poblanos with Spicy Conecuh and Creamy, Cheesy Sauce





I wanted to make some shrimp stuffed peppers but didn't really have a recipe to follow, so I played it by ear.
Had some nice gulf shrimp I brought back from a trip to Texas. Marinated them for about 30 minutes in Mojo Criollo...




blistered, steamed and peeled some poblano peppers...




gave the shrimp a quick cook .... 



sliced and browned off some spicy conecuh sausage... ( they have different flavors, I went with the spicy one. It's not too hot)





Started my sauce.
Sauteed garlic and scallions in butter....



made a basic white sauce with flour and milk...


added salt and cilantro...



then gave it a good dash of Pookie G's Dayum spice to liven it up a bit...




I added the conecuh...along with pan drippings. Then folded in the shrimp and added cheese...

I just went by taste on the salt and seasoning. 


Time to build the peppers.


layered some of the sauce in the pan before adding the peppers..


seeded the peppers and stuffed with the shrimp, sausage and creamy cheese sauce...



Into the drum to smoke with a bit of hickory...




I let them go til they were hot and bubbly...







I really liked these. The sauce was creamy, cheesy and the whole thing took on the smoke well. Not too smokey,  just a hint.







Not sure if I can make them again but I'm going to try. 

The garden is doing great! I still have zucchini and squash running outta my ears but I'm not complaining. Just trying to figure out what to do with all of them.

Hope everyone is keeping cool and having a great week. Thanks for stopping by!

Looks delicious, I never thought of pairing shrimp and pablano peppers, but it looks fantastic. I love creamy sauces with a little bite to them. Thanks for the idea. I love shrimp, mostly warm. Not too keen on cold shrimp recipes. I think I'm getting too picky in my old age :)

That is quite the concoction. I too have the squash and zukes running everywhere. I don't even know why I grow them anymore. After a few meals I'm tired of them and I end up feeding all of them to the neighbors goat!

Thank you cbjstar! I'm like you, I love shrimp mostly warm. :)
I saw a similar stuffed poblano in a restaurant, didn't taste it but thought it looked delicious. I had to try making a version of it. Mine isn't anything fancy but I was happy with the flavors.
Hope summer is treating you well, thanks for stopping by!

lol Bushman, You sound like me..I wonder why I planted so many this year too. After the first week of them, I run out of ideas.
The extras and giant ones have been going to my animals.
Hope all is well on your end of the world, thanks for stopping by! :)
