DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-cook bacon on one side on baking sheet at 325 degree F. for 5 minutes then drain on paper towels (No need to pre-cook prosciutto). Wrap each peeled and deveined shrimp with half slice of bacon or prosciutto by working from head to tail. Secure in place with picks or skewer. Generously coat each shrimp with chili sauce. Grill on high for 3 minutes per side until shrimp is pink and curled, and bacon is crisp. Re-Coat shrimp as desired and serve with lemon wedges.
  • Optional: Bake in advance! Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place shrimp on baking sheet. Bake 10 to 14 minutes, turning once. Wrap in foil to transport, don't lose the juice, it's the best part!
