How to make it

  • Place 2 cups of water, lemon juice and salt into a pot.
  • Bring to a boil and then add shrimp.
  • Simmer until shrimp are pink, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Drain shrimp and cover with ice water to chill.
  • Drain again and remove the legs and peel the shells from the shrimp.
  • Butterfly shrimp; Slice the shrimp down the back, almost to the tail, and remove the vein from each.
  • Rinse the shrimp well and pat them dry.
  • Spinkle baking soda over the shrimp, let stand 30 minutes. This makes the shrimp crisp when baked.
  • To make the sauce, add the oil, ketchup and tomato paste to a saucepan and cook over medium heat while stirring.
  • After about 1-2 minutes, add 1 cup of water, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, salt and sugar to the sauce.
  • Blend cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water and stir into sauce.
  • Cook until thick, about 1 minute.
  • Cut bacon strips into halves and wrap each half around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick.
  • Set oven to broil.
  • Arrange shrimp on a baking sheet, with sides, and brush with melted butter.
  • Place the baking sheet about 3 inches from the heat and broil 5 minutes until brown.
  • Turn and brush again with butter, and broil another 5 minutes until brown.
  • Transfer shrimp to a platter, pour sauce into a serving dish and place in middle of platter for dipping.
