Let’s be honest… bacon makes everything better.
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp is one of my favorite appetizer recipes. They’re quick to make, easy to cook, delicious, and pretty much everyone loves them.
Bonus, they’re bite-size finger food and that’s always a win!
Easy Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Appetizer
I adore bite-size foods. When we’re at events, I’m the first to head over to the appetizers to see what’s on the menu!
Hands down, my all time, favorite appetizers are anything wrapped in bacon… and bacon wrapped shrimp is always a win. Did you know that you can make bacon wrapped shrimp ahead of time? Pop them in a cold oven and broil them for 15 minutes and you’ll have an incredible flavor-packed appetizer that will please everyone?! I mean.. it’s shrimp wrapped in bacon! Bacon makes everything better, right?
I use my new favorite bacon, the Kiolbassa Smoked Meats Dry Cured Hickory Bacon.. ZERO grams of sugar (yay Keto).. I use 1/2 a package… about 15 slices… Cut them in 1/2 crosswise and then in 1/2 lengthwise to create strips.
You have multiple options when it comes to your shrimp… I’m all about easy, so I buy the peeled and deveined shrimp so that these come together as quickly as possible! You’re more than welcome to spend the extra 15-20 minutes to do it yourself.
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Recipe
I like to season my shrimp with pink Himalayan sea salt, all-purpose seasoning salt, and then wrap them with the bacon strips.. It’s super easy and you don’t have to worry about them being perfect 🙂 The bacon cooks up crispy and wraps itself around the shrimp!
Lay the bacon wrapped shrimp on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet and pop that baking sheet in a cold oven and broil on HI for 10-15 minutes or until the bacon is nice and crisp!
These bacon wrapped shrimp are absolute perfection on their own, but I’m a dipper 🙂 So this crazy easy remoulade style sauce is a delicious dipping sauce for this bacon wrapped shrimp!
