When Justin was almost 2, we went to visit my mother in Florida. He loved her Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. He ate some and ate more and kept on eating. It was so funny. Now, he tells me that he only likes bacon in a BLT and shrimp at a Japanese Hibachi. Funny!
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
1 lb. med. shrimp, de-veined
1 lb. bacon
Toothpicks or bamboo skewers
De-vein and wash shrimp. Cut bacon slices into three strips. Wrap bacon around shrimp. Stick through bacon and shrimp so that bacon will not come off. No seasoning is necessary, but the shrimp may be lightly sprinkled with garlic powder for extra flavor, if desired. Heat oil and deep fry shrimp. Cook until bacon is crisp. Remove and drain.
Alternatively, the bacon wrapped shrimp may be laced onto bamboo skewers and grilled over hot coals. Spray them lightly with olive oil spray just before grilling. Keep a water bottle sprayer available to quash flare-ups.
These shrimp make a nice party appetizer or late night snack.
