Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
If you say you don't like bacon, we probably can't be friends. This iconic breakfast food is great by itself or as part of a delicious recipe. So it makes perfect sense that bacon would be amazing wrapped around other foods as well. Inspired by the luxurious restaurant menu item, bacon wrapped scallops, I opted for a more budget friendly option with shrimp instead. And I gotta say, it's absolutely heaven in my mouth.
This bacon wrapped shrimp recipe will be your best friend on bbq day, whenever you have friends over, or really any time you want. This dish leans more toward being fragrantly sweet, but has a hint of saltiness and heat coming from our very own hot sauce. The sauce is a simple mixture of maple syrup, soy sauce, and Nam Prik Chili Sauce. It's super easy to make and you won't be able to stop at only just one. As a matter of fact, I might have devoured *slightly* more than several skewers by myself.
BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- In a small bowl, make the sauce by combining maple syrup, soy sauce, and Nam Prik Chili Sauce.
- Cut bacon in half. Wrap bacon halves around shrimp and secure with skewers.
- Line a large baking pan with aluminum foil. Arrange skewers onto the pan and brush half of the sauce mixture onto the bacon wrapped shrimps.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then take the pan out of the oven to flip the skewers over. Brush the rest of the sauce mixture onto the bacon wrapped shrimps. Bake for 10 minutes more, or until bacon is browned and crisped.
