Bourbon and BBQ Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds (about 20) jumbo shrimps, shelled, deveined, and rinsed
  • 1 ounce bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce), plus extra for glazing
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 10 strips thick cut bacon, cut in half
How to cook Bourbon and BBQ Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon:
  • After preparing shrimp and rinsing, place on a paper towel or pat dry.
  • Combine bourbon, barbecue sauce, honey, olive oil, and pepper in a large zip-lock bag and shake to mix.
  • Add shrimp and shake again to thoroughly coat. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C) and line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon around the shrimp tightly and secure with a toothpick. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining shrimp.
  • Place in the oven to bake for 5 minutes. Flip the shrimp over and bake an additional 5 minutes or until shrimp is pink.
  • Remove from the oven and baste with extra barbecue sauce.
  • Serve the Bourbon and BBQ Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon right away with a lemon wedge as garnish.

Note:

The Bourbon and BBQ Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon recipe is delicious, simple, and really easy to cook.

Tips:

If you prefer your bacon more crisp or if you’re using smaller shrimp, precook bacon in the oven or in a skillet before wrapping around the shrimp. Make sure it’s still flexible after cooking or it won’t wrap around with breaking. You don’t want under-cooked bacon OR overcooked shrimp.

Comments:

How do you make something so simple, yet delicious, even tastier? Marinate those suckers in bourbon and glaze them with barbecue sauce, that’s how! They make a great appetizer or snack and your only regret will be not cooking more of them so I recommend doubling this recipe!
