Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • When selecting your balsamic vinegar, look for one with a rich flavor and a thick consistency.
  • When selecting your bacon, look for a thick cut bacon that will hold up well when wrapping the shrimp.

  • Substitute the balsamic vinegar with apple cider vinegar - this is a great option for those who prefer a less intense flavor and a sweeter taste.
  • Substitute the olive oil with coconut oil - this is a healthier option as coconut oil is high in healthy fats and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Replace the balsamic vinegar with equal parts of your favorite barbecue sauce and honey. Marinate the shrimp in the sauce for 1 hour. Wrap with half slice bacon and bake in a 475 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes. Broil for 2-3 minutes.

Grilled Asparagus with Garlic: This simple side dish is the perfect accompaniment to the bacon wrapped shrimp. The asparagus is grilled in garlic and olive oil, adding a delicious flavor to the dish and providing a healthy option to balance out the bacon.

Roasted Potatoes with Herbs: Roasted potatoes, seasoned with herbs such as rosemary, oregano, and thyme, are a simple and flavorful side dish that pairs well with the bacon wrapped shrimp. Potatoes provide a hearty and filling accompaniment, and the herbs add an extra layer of flavor to the dish.


Q: How long should I marinate the shrimp?

We had these on Superbowl Sunday and they were delicious. It was hard passing the plate around because I wanted them right where I could grab another one in a hurry! I made sure I got the bacon crispy at 3 minutes.
