If you’re looking for something easy and delicious, then look no further then this recipe for bbq bacon wrapped shrimp It’s super easy to put together and comes out delicious! The secret ingredient is the NEW Zesty rub from Meadow Creek BBQ Supply . The Zesty rub and Original sauce make one delicious combination!
For this recipe we’ll be using jumbo, peeled and deveined shrimp, and thinner cut bacon slices. Since shrimp cooks very fast and bacon takes a little longer, we have to use bigger sized shrimp and thinner bacon in order for everything to cook at the same time.
Start by seasoning the shrimp with the Zesty rub. Cut the bacon pieces in half and wrap each shrimp with the bacon. I like to leave the tails on, making a built in handle for the shrimp. I also used a toothpick to help hold the bacon in place. When everything is wrapped, lightly season the bacon with a little more of the Zesty rub.
Fire up the grill and set it up for direct grilling. I like the temp to be around 350-400 degrees. Place the bacon wrapped shrimp directly on the grate. Grill for 2 minutes and flip. The bacon should start to crisp up by now. The Original bbq sauce and brush it on the outside of the bacon. Continue grilling until the sauce starts to caramelize, approximately 2-3 more minutes.
Remove the shrimp from the grill, top with some fresh parsley and enjoy! Check out the Recipes for other tasty ideas!
