Recipe by Pixie

A rumaki for those who hate liver! Soy marinated, bacon wrapped, shrimp and water chestnut bundles... Use them as an appetizer or main course with rice and a veggie stir fry.

Sherri, I made this for a Sunday evening dinner. I have had the rumaki with chicken liver, but I prefer this one. I love shrimp, and this was so good. I made it exactly as you directed, but I didn't have sweet sherry, so I substituted white wine. I thought it turned out wonderful, and I guess my guests did too, as they all disappeared. It is a very good recipe, and I will be using this one again. Thanks for sharing.
