Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar ShrimpPosted: December 23, 2009
Another hit from Chelsea at our annual wine pairing party. This app was the first to be QUICKLY eaten and the spicy and sweet combo was PERFECT. Sorry there is no pic. By the time I remembered to take one they were all gone! Definitely worth making!!
1 pound uncooked shrimp – peeled
1 package bacon
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with pam (lightly).
Cut bacon strips in half
Mix brown sugar and cayenne at this ratio: 4 Tablespoons brown sugar (light or dark) and 1/2 t cayenne pepper **
Wrap each shrimp with a piece of bacon
Lay on baking sheet with about 1 inch between
sprinkle with brown sugar cayenne mixture
Broil on low until the shrimp are no longer translucent ( usually 5-7 mins)
** You can adjust this to your liking depending on how spicy you prefer. We like it with more brown sugar and just a little zing from the cayenne.
