Allow to sit at room temp. for 30 min. then stuff the shrimp.  Wrap in bacon and grill for 8-10 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.  Serve hot with a fresh salad.

NOTE:  queso fresco doesn’t melt so it won’t fall out of the shrimp.  Just make sure to over lap the bacon to cover the filling completely.
