Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Recipe

This recipe is wonderfully delicious. Spiced up just like the popular restaurant version. It’s baked in the oven so a careful watch is necessary to have the bacon and the shrimp both done at the same time.


16 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 slices bacon
Barbeque seasoning, to taste


Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.

Wrap the shrimp with 1/2 slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Be sure and use the large shrimp–the cooking time for the shrimp and the bacon is similar.

Line a jellyroll pan with extra heavy-duty aluminum foil and place the baking rack in the pan. Place the shrimp on the rack and sprinkle heavily with the barbecue seasoning, turn and sprinkle second side. Let the shrimp sit for 15 minutes. The bacon will turn from creamy white to a little opaque, and the seasonings will soak in.

Cook the bacon for 10 to 15 minutes. The rack keeps the shrimp from sitting in the draining bacon fat.

Choose either of the recipes. They are both soooo good. You just can’t go wrong with bacon and shrimp.
