    Not sure where to put this thread, fish non-fish or just bacon? LOL!
    Here we go, I used ERAIN'S rum soaked salmon recipe (thx Erain) cut the salmon into smaller appetizer pieces and wrapped with bacon topped with dill


    The shrimp...
    I let the shrimp swim overnight in EVOO with fennel seed, dill and Gah'lic
    sliced a plantain wrapped the shrimp and plantain with the bacon..now we are ready to smoke...just waiting for some room......

    this is a work in progress [​IMG]

    are you using the plantain raw? or have you pre done something with it?
    smoked plantain is great. and was it green or black (the plantain)?

    you plans for the smoke sound great..

    when you fire your caban boy can I take his place??

    plantain was raw and was yellow, I don;t like the sweetness of the black, black ones, I prefer the green ones fried, I almost fried this one then said forget it, try it a new way..so there it is...

    LOL! My cabana boy is only here for 3 more years then off to either college or Air force...If you can take care of his new snake you have the job!!!

    Great looking smokes so far, BBQG. Always throwing in something "original" into the mix! Am anxious to see how the shrimp wrapped plantains turn out. Good luck!

    I have had some problems getting on the forum...
    I took the shrimp and gave them a quick fry to crisp the bacon, same with the salmon wrapped pieces. I did however have rave reviews and the platanos (plantain) was such an amazing little tid bit of flavor and texture, wow! they were gone in seconds...

    here are the shrimp after crisping them up..



    here is the salmon after crisping them up....



    the salmon was so amazing with the rum soak then the bacon...WOW!!
    I wish I could send you all a piece! you have to try Erains rum soak..omg!! to die for!! thanks again ERAIN!![​IMG]
