    Units: US | Metric

    • 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)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Wrap a slice of bacon around each large prawn.
    3. 3
      Secure bacon by skewering each shrimp and bacon slice through with a toothpick.
    4. 4
      Place in baking dish or on baking tray.
    5. 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. 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.

      I loved these. I used Kraft BBQ sauce (the "original", I believe). I added a tad of cayenne and probably 1 tbs. of horseradish. I'll write in down next time. I wrapped each prawn with 1/2 slice of turkey bacon (don't think my prawns were as large as they could have been), and then poured a little of the sauce over them. This is going to be dinner again tomorrow nite (I have shrimp left over). I won't change a thing.

      These are really good!!! The flavors of the horseradish sauce, tobasco sauce and BBQ sauce blended together really well. it has great flavor. I do not use any cayenne in it. I don't know if it was the bacon I used, but it did not crisp up like I had hoped it would. I may have also put too much BBQ sauce on it or that I used a regular cake pan instead of a less deeper baking dish. I will be making this again and use a diffferent type of pan and brush less BBQ sauce on the bacon. Thanks for a great recipe Julesong!!

      If you wrap a small peice of fresh basil leaf around each prawn before you wrap it in bacon I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!!!
