Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Everybody loves bacon wrapped shrimp, but this classic is updated with a gorgeous brush of a sweet and tangy TABASCO® peach glaze. The outside of the bacon is perfectly crisped on the grill and the shrimp stay nice and juicy. The glaze is brushed on during the last few minutes of grilling to caramelize, adding both amazing color and flavor.

Tips for Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Shrimp and bacon typically have two different cooking times, so it is important to pay attention to both elements so they are cooked perfectly and done at the same time. For this recipe, I recommend using Extra Jumbo Shrimp (16-20 per pound) and avoiding any thick sliced bacon. This size shrimp will be thick enough to give the bacon time to cook through and crisp without overcooking the shrimp themselves.

I feel these bacon wrapped shrimp really need a skewer or toothpick to keep everything together. You can use individual toothpicks if you want to serve as an appetizer, or for an entree sized serving, you can thread 4-5 shrimp on a kebab skewer. Just make sure the ends of the bacon are secured to the bacon to prevent them from unraveling on the grill.

It is full blown peach season, and I like to find any opportunity I can to use those flavors in my late summer recipes. My best friends mom always made the most amazing fresh peach jam growing up, and those memories absolutely inspired this glaze. If you can’t find fresh jam, it is always easy to find in the grocery store.

This glaze needed a little extra punch to round out that sweet peach jam, so I put in a few dashes of TABASCO® Brand Pepper sauce, garlic, a little soy sauce, and a little Dijon mustard. It is the perfect balance of sweet, savory, plus that classic red pepper TABASCO® kick! This recipe makes enough sauce to glaze on the shrimp, but also extra for dipping. If you still find yourself with some of this finger-licking glaze, you can try brushing it on some grilled chicken breasts. It is absolutely phenomenal!

  1. Daniel, I had the same problem of pots disintigrating in a firing but the circumstances were completly different. My pieces were fired in an Anagama kiln fired to cone 11/12. I have not gotton to the bottom of the mystery but I believe it had to do with the pieces being glazed inside and not on the outside of the pots. I use a flashing spray to encourage the fly ash to flash and make color. Sone of the pieces had to be swepted off the shelf and others fell appart 36 hours later, I took a picture of a piece and 5 minutes is was in a heap, needless to say I was shocked, never had this happen before. I was trying a new clay in the wood firing of which I have used in my gas kiln to cone 11. I believe it had to do with the pressure of the glaze on the inside not being compatable with the clay with no glaze on the outside. I will test this again the next time we fire the Anagama. Are your pieces glazed in and out? Does anybody have any ideas?

  2. I like to pre cook the bacon until it is still flexible so bacon is fully cooked as the shrimp cook quickly.Raw bacon not good eats.

  3. Is it possible to cook these without using a grill? Can you make them in the oven and watch them and flip them as if it is on the grill?
