A simple but delicious recipe that uses only 2 main ingredients. Perfect for summer grilling.


1 lb. of peeled and deveined extra-large raw shrimp

10 pieces of uncooked regular or turkey bacon

Kabob skewers

Salt and pepper (optional)


1. Use meat scissors to cut the bacon into thirds.

2. Tightly wrap the bacon around each shrimp and slide onto a skewer. For better results you can use 2 skewers.

3.  Cook the skewers on either a grill or in a pan on the stove top until the shrimp is pink and the bacon is cooked (about two to three minutes on each side).

4. Serve right away with one or more of the delicious dipping sauces.


It’s up to you whether to use regular bacon or turkey bacon. 

Soak the wooden skewers in water for 10 to 15 minutes before threading the shrimp onto them to prevent burning.

This recipe makes about 10 kabobs using large shrimp. The number will vary depending on the size of the shrimp. I made my kabobs with 3 shrimps on each one.
