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!
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
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.
