Shrimp on the Barbie

Living in the middle of the country, we obviously don’t have fresh seafood, despite what the sign at Price Chopper says. Ever since I was little, I never really ate seafood. I used to eat fish sticks, until my grandma was like “I don’t eat fish cause the water is polluted.” And from then on, fish grossed me out. Recently I have been trying some. We went out Friday for his mom’s birthday to Red Lobster, I had a bite of her lobster, some lobster pizza, and some of his shrimp. Then Saturday for dinner I had fish and chips. So in looking through my cook book, I saw a shrimp recipe and decided to try it. Her recipe is cooked in the oven, we cooked ours on the barbecue grill.

Take one piece of bacon (half a slice), and coat it in the sauce. Wrap the sauce-covered bacon around a piece of shrimp, and place it seam side down on the baking pan. Repeat with the rest of the bacon and shrimp, and then give them a quick mist with nonstick spray.


Place pan in the oven and cook until shrimp are cooked through and bacon is crispy (about 10 - 15 minutes).
