Save Recipe


30 (31 to 35) shrimp, peeled and deveined

15 strips bacon, partially cooked and cut in half

Vegetable oil, as needed

1 cup barbecue sauce


Special equipment:
Small bamboo skewers
  1. Preheat the broiler. Wrap each shrimp with a bacon slice. Thread each shrimp on a small bamboo skewer and brush lightly with oil before broiling. Place skewers on a wire rack set into a foil-lined metal tray.
  2. Broil the shrimp until the bacon gets crispy on all sides. Baste with barbecue sauce and broil for 2 minutes. Turn once and finish, another 3 to 6 minutes, or until shrimp are just cooked through. Serve warm.

Cook’s Note

Soak the skewers in water before using to prevent them from catching fire when the shrimp are cooking.
