Bacon Wrapped BBQ Shrimp

This Bacon Wrapped BBQ Shrimp is  soooooo good you will ask why you haven’t made it before! 

Have you ever become “food mesmerized”? I saw a Food Network Chef make a Bacon wrapped BBQ Salmon the other day and I was mesmerized. I had to keep watching to get the recipe. The thought of wrapping seafood in bacon mesmerized me. Why on earth would someone do this? But I had to try it.

Well, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it to Salmon, but Shrimp I could do. I was thrilled with the result and I know you will too! Bacon Wrapped BBQ Shrimp will become a staple in your Summer repertoire for sure! Add it to your grill when firing up a Steak. This will be your go to App everytime!

  • 1. BBQ Sauce: In a saucepan, saute butter and onions until translucent. Add remaining ingredients. Lower heat to medium low and simmer for 1 hour. (min) Remove from heat. Cool 30 mins. Refrigerate in closed container. (I use old water bottle)
  • 2. Instructions for Shrimp:
    Wrap each Shrimp with 1/2 slice of bacon. (Pre-cook the bacon by half.) The bacon takes too long to cook and the shrimp will be overcooked by the time the bacon cooks.
  • 3. Once Shrimp is wrapped in bacon, Place Shrimp on the Metal Skewers. (may use wooden, if pre-soaked in water to prevent burning) Be sure to "catch" the ends of the bacon, so they stay attached to shrimp when turning.
  • 4. Grill shrimp on direct heat until bacon is crisp. Move to indirect heat and baste with BBQ sauce. 2-3 times When Shrimp start to give resistance, remove from grill. Serve and Enjoy!
