Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

After noticing a box of delicious looking bacon-wrapped shrimp in the frozen food department at Food Lion, I went looking for a recipe. I just can’t bring myself to pay the price for ready made food that I can make myself! I found several recipes online and finally settled on the one from pinchandswirl.com with a few tweaks of my own. They are easy to make. You can make a batch and put them in the freezer to save last minute work or have them handy for a meal.

These are delicious. The first two times I made them in the oven but the last time I cooked them on the grill. In the oven was good but on the grill is awesome!!! They are so good you don’t even need a sauce to dip them in!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange bacon slices on wire rack on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 mins. (Depends on thickness of your bacon). It should still be pliable and will still look raw.
  2. Let the bacon cool just enough to handle and wrap one piece around each shrimp and secure using a round toothpick. It is after this step that I put the shrimp in a container and freeze for finishing to cook later.
  3. To complete the cooking process in the oven...., sprinkle frozen bacon-wrapped shrimp with salt, pepper and garlic. Return to oven for another 20 minutes until the bacon is done. You do not want to overcook and dry out the shrimp. Serve hot.
  4. To complete the cooking on the grill instead of the oven...., sprinkle the frozen bacon-wrapped shrimp with salt, pepper and garlic. I simply laid the bacon-wrapped shrimp on the preheated grill.
  5. Grill on high for about 25 mins-until bacon is fried just right. The flavor is awesome. I highly prefer this method of cooking over the oven.
