If you’d prefer to use an air fryer if you have one, you’re more than encouraged to! You’re welcome to change this recipe to accommodate your preferences, especially if there are any food and diet restrictions. But in the meantime, this is how we do it at Nuts Over Fish!
- Preheat the oven to bake at 400 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine 4 ounces of cream cheese and Nuts Over Fish Macadamia Topping and mix together.
- Put the mixture of cream cheese and nuts into each jalapeno half. Make sure to fill it all the way!

- Here are a few combinations of how you can finish this appetizer before putting it in the oven:
- Top alone with shrimp (uncooked).
- Top alone with plum (cut plums to fit into jalapeno half).
- Top with both plum and shrimp.
- Wrap up the jalapenos and cream cheese mixture with just bacon.
- Top jalapeno halves with shrimp or plum and then wrap in bacon.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. If you’d like the bacon to be more crispy, adjust the cooking time to your preference and cook a little longer.
