Prep Time: 15 Min

Cook Time: 10 Min


– 24 raw shrimp jumbo size, peeled and deveined, tail on – 1/4 cup olive oil – 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar – 2 tablespoons parsley or basil, finely chopped – 1 garlic – 1 tablespoon brown sugar packed – salt and pepper to taste – 12 slices bacon

Place all of the ingredients for the marinade into a Ziploc bag. Do not include the bacon. Toss in the shrimp, making sure all pieces are submerged into the juices. Allow the shrimp to marinate for 20 minutes.

Step 1

While the shrimp is marinating cook the bacon. Place strips on a foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes. The bacon should be cooked, but still pliable to be able to wrap without breaking.

Step 2

Remove the bacon from the oven, and turn the temperature down to 400 degrees. Slice each piece of bacon in half and wrap individual marinated shrimp in a half piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat for all remaining shrimp.

Step 3

Place all bacon-wrapped shrimp onto a clean baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the shrimp is cooked through.

Step 4

As an appetizer they’re perfect on their own or with your favorite creamy dipping sauce, or lemon wedges for an extra squirt. You can serve with or without toothpicks, especially if the tails are still there for easy lifting.
