Step 1

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 2

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 3

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 4

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

Step 5

Present these adorable appetizers in a festive way by arranging them in the shape of a Christmas tree, similar to my Christmas tree cheese platter!
