"Who ever first thought of wrapping something in bacon is a genius. The trick to doing this right is finding the thinnest sliced bacon you can. You want the bacon to get crisp without having to cook the shrimp to death. The Oscar Mayer brand is a nice thin one, however if you can find a better smoked bacon like applewood or something, go for it. I find that making a sauce for these is entirely unnecessary. I mean, you got the bacon... hard to top that! When it comes to your shrimp, try to get wild shrimp as opposed to farm raised. You will taste the difference."

"When I was attempting the low/no carb diet recently I tried this although I thought it was my own invention :) Let me tell you what--you don't need anything else besides shrimp and bacon--easiest recipe ever and it is SO good! I tried one batch pretty much like is described in the recipe here...I also tried using an electric skillet and cooking the shrimp and bacon separately at first (anything cooked in bacon grease is good!) and I think I liked it that way even better than in the oven."
"Pac2009. WOW and WOW Can I give 10 stars? These are fabulous as told to me by guests. I did not get a sample as they were gone so fast. Made for Easter table appie. I did not use the salt as dietary restrictions but I guess it was not needed, no one said anything except YUM! and is there more? I did put a small dish of kosher salt out and it never was touched that I know of. Absolutely fantastic. I can see using this as a meal instead of an appie when it is DH and I along with some angel hair pasta and fresh veggies. Excellent!"
