    Add one tablespoon oil to a medium skillet, over medium heat. Cook bacon until crisp, or if using Canadian bacon, just brown. Remove from skillet. Over medium high heat, add seasoned shrimp to skillet and cook, until bright pink - about 2 minutes, turning once. Remove from heat and reduce heat. Stir in garlic, green onion, stirring so not to burn, once tender and golden, increase heat and add broth and reduce by half. Stir in butter, parsley, lemon juice and hot sauce. Return shrimp to sauce and cook just one minute longer.
