DIRECTIONS

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