Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

 

INGREDIENTS:

12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp

2 Tbsp olive oil

Zest from 1 lime

Juice from one lime (about 2 Tbsp)

1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder (or more to taste)

6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces)

Skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven)

 

HOW TO PREPARE:

1. Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder.

2. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

3. Spread the bacon pieces out over several layers of paper towels on a microwave-safe plate.

4. Cover with another layer of paper towel.

5. Microwave on high until the bacon fat begins to melt but the bacon is still pliable, about 1 1/2 minutes.

6. Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450°F.

7. Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of microwaved bacon around each piece of shrimp.

*** If you are grilling, thread the shrimp onto long, flat skewers (flat skewers make turning the shrimp on the grill easier).

*** If you don’t have flat skewers, I’ve used two thin bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand) to the same effect.

 *** If you are using the oven,secure each the bacon onto the shrimp with toothpicks.

8. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan (lined with foil inside for easy cleaning).

9. Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

10. Grill uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until shrimp is pink and the bacon is crisp.
