Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

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. 
Trust me.
