Sometimes the simplest recipes turn out to be the best. I love grilled shrimp and I made a simple little change to this meal to make it even better. - I added bacon! I wrapped some jumbo shrimp in bacon before I put it on the grill. Voila - grilled shrimp, kicked up a notch.
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
Place 6 strips of bacon on top of 4 paper towels on plate.
Top with 4 more paper towels and 6 more strips of bacon. Place 2 paper towels and a plate on top. Microwave for 4 minutes.
Cut bacon strips in half and wrap each shrimp in bacon. Secure onto skewer.
Put the skewers on the grill. I cooked mine about 4 minutes on each side.
8 minutes cooking time - perfect.
Check out these tiny little zucchini that I found at Trader Joe's to compliment my bacon wrapped shrimp. I cooked the zucchini alongside the shrimp and they were the perfect compliment to this yummy meal.
Grilled shrimp is fine but bacon wrapped grilled shrimp is even better.
