DirectionsWatch how to make this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet tray with foil. Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
Whisk together the olive oil, garlic and lemon zest in a large bowl. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper and toss into the olive oil mixture. Let sit and marinate while the bacon cools, about 15 minutes.
Add the honey, rooster sauce and smoked paprika to a small bowl and stir together until blended. Reserve.
Once the bacon is cool, wrap each shrimp with the half slice of bacon and thread with a skewer. Thread the shrimp through the center of its body and through the bacon, securing it. Thread 3 shrimp per skewer.
