Smoked Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Hope everyone is having a great 3 weekend. I know Memorial Day is the start to many fun and exciting things like the start of lake season (if you live in the Midwest), grilling season, and Summer! My favorite part of Summer is going to the lake and grilling/smoking of course. What is your favorite part of Summer? What do you like to cook the most? Let me know in the comments below.
How to make Smoked Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
If you are using frozen shrimp you will have to defrost them. I like to soak them in some water and the shrimp will be ready to cook in about an hour. Take the shell off the shrimp and wrap them with the bacon. I like to use procussto because it will cook faster on the grill. Make the marinade and add the pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and green onions to a bowl. Place the bacon wrapped shrimp in a zip lock bag and add the marinade to it. Preheat your smoker to 225 and then crank the heat up as high as it will go. The shrimp were ready to eat in 10 minutes. If you aren’t smoking and grilling instead use the same settings as listed above.
Smoking on a Charcoal Grill
Allow 30 minutes to 1 hour for the coals to burn down to the correct temperature and the water to heat up. Next, drop damp wood chips or dry wood chunks directly onto the coals. Then place your food on top of the cooking grate over the water pan and cover your grill. – from weber.comPrint
10 colassal shrimp or Tiger Shrimp
5 thinly sliced strips of Prosciutto
1/4 cup of pineapple juice
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon garlic
1 tablespoon of ginger
2 tablespoons of chopped scallions
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
Remove the shell from the shrimp and wrap the Prosciutto around the shrimp. The Prosciutto I had was very long so I cut mine in half.
In a bowl combine the ingredients for the marinade. Pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and green onions.
Place the bacon wrapped shrimp in a gallon zip lock bag and add the marinade. Let that sit in the fridge for an hr.
Preheat your smoker or grill and set it to the highest temp possible. Place the shrimp on the grill and cook on one side for 7 minutes. After the 7 minutes is over flip the shrimp and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
