This recipe I found in the "The Barbecue Bible", by Steven Raichlen. This appetizer has advantage over deep fried versions by heightening the flavor and reducing the fat. Note: skewers or toothpicks should be soaked for one hour in cold water before grilling.

How to Make Grilled Shrimp Dim Sum

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat the grill to medium-high.
  • 2Peel and devein the shrimp(if not already done). Trim off the greens from the scallions, reserving them for another dish, then trim off the roots; you should be left with 2-inch sections of scallion white. Cut the bacon strips crosswise in half.
  • 3Nestle each scallion white in the curved hollow of a shrimp, then wrap in piece of bacon and secure with a bamboo skewer or toothpick by running the skewer or toothpick through the wrapped shrimp.
  • 4When ready to cook, arrange the dim sum on the hot grate and grill until the shrimp are firm and pink and the bacon is crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side, turning once with tongs. Serve immediately.
