Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Wrap shrimp with 1/2 slice of bacon, securing with a toothpick. Be sure and use the large shrimp--the cooking time for the shrimp and the bacon is similar. If you use medium-sized shrimp, you might want to precook the bacon a little--over cooked shrimp are tough and rubbery--and a real shame.
  3. Line a jelly roll pan with extra heavy duty foil, and place baking rack in pan. Place the shrimp on the rack, and sprinkle heavily with the barbecue seasoning, turn and sprinkle second side. Let the shrimp sit for 15 minutes. The bacon will turn from creamy white to a little opaque, and the seasonings will soak in.
  4. Cook the bacon for 10 to 15 minutes. The rack keeps the shrimp from sitting in the draining bacon fat. With a little luck, you won't tear the foil -- you can throw that away and only have to scrub the rack.

I've prepared a similar appetizer that involved making a small cut down the back of a large or jumbo peeled shrimp and inserting a slice of mild jalapeno pepper before wrapping with bacon. I've found that by winding 1/3 of a bacon slice, starting at one end and finishing at the other end to achieve a single thickness, the bacon has a better chance of cooking adequately and evenly. To cook, I heat the oven temp on the broil setting, add the wrapped shrimp, cook for 2 minutes, turn the shrimp over and broil for another 2 minutes, then turn the oven off and allow the shrimp to finish cooking as the temp gradually decreases. By the time the shrimp begins to turn pink, the bacon will be cooked.

these cooked up fine (I did precook bacon slightly), but just wasn’t enough flavor. I made them again and basted with bbq sauce which improved it.

These are fantastic~ I wish I would have made more. A guest at our superbowl party ate two and he is allergic to shrimp, but he said they are soooo good. I used pre-cooked bacon and it was perfect when I baked it for 10 minutes. Will be making these again for other get togethers.

I love shrimp, and I loved this recipie! I added McCormick's Montreal Steak seasoning and the shrimp tasted great, everybody liked them. I bought giant shrimps and its better than the restaurant because I can eat as much shrimp as I want for less money. Thanks Jan

Just some tips for anyone who hasn't made this yet...don't use thick cut bacon! LOL! I cooked the bacon in the microwave for 2 minutes before wrapping the shrimp and it just never got crisp. Next time I'm going to try again with thin cut bacon :) This is a RICH food and even though it didn't come out the way I expected, it was still very delicious.

I don't know if it was the bacon, or "Johnny's Grub Rub," also from this site, or both, but this was just spectacular. We partially cooked the bacon in the microwave to make sure it was cooked through without overcooking the shrimp. We also found that since the shrimp we used were the 21-25 count that they needed to be in the oven just nine minutes, so watch the cooking time carefully. I served this with Green Rice III and it was a match made in heaven. Words are inadequate to describe how delicious and beautiful this was.

I have a similar recipe where I dip the wrapped shrimp in a chipotle BBQ sauce and place them on the grill...simply awesome! And for added zip, I added a strip of jalepeno pepper along the back of the shrimp before wrapping it. This last touch had everyone raving.

This dish is fabulous! I served with dirty rice and cornbread and my husband could not stop raving! I used the precooked bacon you can buy in a box at the grocery store and everything turned out just right. Thanks Jan!
