Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp With Chipotle Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Game Day Eats: Bacon-Wrapped Barbecued Shrimp

When I think of a game day, it always involves food sensations. The scent of bacon wafting through the air, the sticky fingers that require licking clean, the lingering heat from a spicy sauce that causes lips to tingle. A dish that exemplifies these sentiments? Bacon-wrapped shrimp with spicy barbecue sauce. They are, as Guy Fieri would say, "a triple F" — filling, flavorful, and fun to eat — basically everything you could ever want in a Super Bowl snack. Not to mention that the recipe is easy and the sauce can be made in advance. To score big with these amazing skewers, get the recipe and

Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp With Chipotle Barbecue Sauce Recipe 2010-01-26 15:11:25


20 strips bacon (about 12 ounces)
20 medium-large shrimp, shelled and deveined (about 1 pound)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
3 tablespoons chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Freshly ground pepper


  1. Soak 5 to 8 bamboo skewers in water for about 20 minutes to keep them from burning on the grill or under the broiler.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet until halfway done, about 4 minutes. Drain and cool on paper towels.
  3. Wrap a piece of bacon around the middle of each shrimp; skewer with bamboo through the point where the bacon ends meet to keep it from unraveling. Thread 3 to 5 shrimp on each bamboo skewer.
  4. Puree the barbecue sauce, oil, lemon juice, mustard, chipotles, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper in a blender. Set aside half of the sauce for dipping.
  5. Preheat a grill, grill pan or broiler. Grill or broil shrimp (on a foil-lined baking sheet, if broiling) for 5 minutes, basting with the sauce once they begin to turn pink. Flip, baste again and grill or broil until just cooked through, about 4 more minutes. Serve with extra sauce.

Who needs a game to eat this???????.....the key to making bacon wrapped shrimp is to pre cook the bacon (as you stated in your recipe) otherwise the shrimp will be over cooked by the time the bacon is done.
