Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped ShrimpFrom shirleyoma 9 years ago
- 12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp shopping list
- 2 Tbsp olive oil shopping list
- Zest from 1 lime shopping list
- juice from one lime (about 2 Tbsp) shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder shopping list
- 6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces) shopping list
- skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven) shopping list
How to make it
- 1 Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

- 2 Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450°F.
- 3 Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of 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. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan (lined with foil inside for easy cleaning).
