Bacon-Wrapped Ginger Shrimp

4 12 2011

Looking for an easy and delicious appetizer recipe to take to a holiday party this month? I’ve got just the thing….actually, I should say Everyday Food has just the thing!

Bacon-Wrapped Ginger Shrimp

The following makes 26 shrimp appetizers:

  • 1 lb peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 1 package bacon
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated (save time and use the tube!)
  • 1 tsp packed light-brown sugar
  • Toothpicks

Preheat oven to 475 degrees, with rack in upper third.

Cut 13 bacon slices in half crosswise and wrap each piece around a large shrimp. Secure with a toothpick.

In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, ginger and brown sugar. Add bacon-wrapped shrimp to soy sauce mixture and toss to coat.

Arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and boil until bacon is sizzling and crisp at edges and shrimp are cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. I ended up having to broil these a few minutes longer, but it worked out because I flipped them half way through to make sure both sides were sizzling.

I let these cool a little and then sprinkled with fresh lime juice. You can serve warm or at room temperature.
