How To Make bacon wrapped shrimp

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon halves in a single layer on old baking sheet or baking sheet that has been covered with aluminum foil. Place in the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes. Move partially cooked bacon to paper towels to drain.
  • 2
    Meanwhile in a small saucepan combine soy sauce, water, brown sugar, sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, ketchup and garlic. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Wrap a piece of bacon around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick. Place them in a single layer on the baking sheet that you cooked the bacon on. Brush the shrimp with the spicy sweet sauce and place in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip them, and baste them again. Bake for 5 more minutes.

    Remove from the oven and baste again. Place under the broiler on high for 2-3 minutes rotating the baking sheet several times. Stay close by as broilers are unpredictable and can easily burn the shrimp.
