yields 8 servings of 2 shrimp each

1/2 pound ground venison
1/2 pound ground pork
2 teaspoons freshly chopped basil leaves
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 cloves shallots, finely chopped
2 eggs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
16 pieces extra-jumbo shrimp (size: 16 to 20 count per pound), peeled and de-veined
8 slices bacon, cut in 1/2 (16 halves)
Combine venison, pork, basil, parsley, garlic, shallots, eggs, and salt and pepper and mix well.

Preheat broiler.

Make an incision along back of each shrimp and stuff with pork mixture. Secure by wrapping the half slice of bacon around each shrimp. Broil until meat stuffing is cooked and bacon is golden brown, being careful to avoid overcooking shrimp.
