      Really enjoyed this one and was nice and easy to prepare. Rather than eat as an entree I used half the recipe for lunch along with some mesclun, asparagus, olives and cherry tomatoes. I didn't have any red wine vinegar so used Balsamic, although it was only a commercial grade so probably mainly red wine vinegar anyway. One thing I think was an error in the recipe was that it said to use eight slices of bacon cut into thirds which would have yielded 24 slices, I only used the main mean portion of the bacon so thirds would have been too small anyway so cut them in half. I used Tasmanian Tiger Prawns on a medium to hot BBQ using direct heat, I assumed the lower cooking time of the prawns would allow them to cook through the indirect heat of the bacon and it worked well. The Bearnaise sauce was also very nice for such a quick way to prepare and I might try in the future on other kinds of meat.

      Great recipe! The sauce is distinctive enough to stand up to the bacon. It helps to use the largest, freshest shrimp you can get so that they aren't overpowered either. Worked as a snack and as a main course with a simple salad.
