Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 large prawns, per person you're serving,shelled and deveined
  • 6 pieces of raw bacon, 5-6 inches per slice,one for each shrimp
  • 1 -2 cup spicy barbecue sauce
  • cayenne (optional) or prepared horseradish, to taste (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wrap a slice of bacon around each large prawn.
  3. Secure bacon by skewering each shrimp and bacon slice through with a toothpick.
  4. Place in baking dish or on baking tray.
  5. Add cayenne or horseradish (or both) to taste to the BBQ sauce (you can substitute Tabasco, if you like - the point is for the sauce to have a little kick), then brush each shrimp/bacon with BBQ sauce. (Or you can dip each one in the sauce before putting it on the tray.)
  6. Bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes or until bacon is thoroughly cooked through - if the bacon isn't crisping as much as you'd like, try broiling it for the last 5 minutes, being careful to check that the sauce isn't burning and so on.
