We all know that everything’s better with bacon, right? So you just know that bacon wrapped shrimp has to be fantastic, right?
This is a recipe that I’ve adapted from Rachael Ray’s “30 Minute Get Real Meals” and it is definitely fantastic! I’ve been making it for quite a few years now and it is a favorite of the “shrimp lovers” in my family. The marinade is Asian inspired with sesame oil and lime juice with a little bit of red pepper flakes added for some heat (but it’s not too spicy) and it’s super simple to make.
It’s also versatile because it’s great as an appetizer or as a main dish. If you’re serving this as a main dish, it would be great served over jasmine or basmati rice.
