How to make Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Recipe
You will need to use shrimp that has been peeled, deveined and the tail removed; place the shrimp in a mixing bowl and pour on the olive oil. Toss the shrimp until it is all covered with the olive oil. Now you are going to add in the rest on the seasonings mix until all of the shrimp is seasoned.
Cook the bacon until it is fully cooked, but still flexible. The bacon will crisp up the rest of the way in the oven while the shrimp are cooking.
Slice the bacon pieces in half and wrap around the shrimp, using toothpicks to secure the bacon to the shrimp.
Place the shrimp on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cook the shrimp in your oven with the rack on the top spot under the broiler. You want your shrimp about 3 inches from the broiler. Set a timer for 4 minutes, after 4 minutes flip the shrimp over and place back under the broiler for another 3-4 minutes.
Stay close to the oven while your shrimp cooks, you don’t want it to overcook and these cook really quickly under the broiler.
When the shrimp is pink and cooked through and bacon nice and crunchy, remove from the oven and take the shrimp off of the pan. Serve immediately, these are best served warm.

This was delicious and went so fast in my house!
This is amazing. I didn’t make enough – they were gone as soon as I put them out!
Will this recipe work if using the pre cooked bacon from the store? I always cook it a tad more anyway but was wondering if putting precooked bacon under the broiler that long might burn it up.

Wondering. Can I make and put in refrigerator to cook tomorrow
Yes, you can do that. Just make sure to keep them in an airtight container for up to 24 hours in the fridge.
