Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Servings 8 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 jalapeños seeds removed, julienned
  • 1 lb. thick cut bacon (applewood smoked preferred) cut into thirds
  • 4 limes zested and juiced
  • 1 cup honey
  • cup cilantro chopped (You can substitute with chopped parsley, if preferred)
  • skewers I prefer 12" metal skewers

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place 1 slice of jalapeño into the groove of a deveined shrimp. Wrap shrimp in bacon strip (be sure each slice of bacon has been cut into thirds!). Secure bacon around shrimp with a metal skewer. Repeat this process for all shrimp.
  • Whisk together lime juice and honey. Divide the mixture between two bowls: one bowl will be for basting the raw shrimp and one bowl will be for a dipping sauce.
  • Add lime zest and chopped cilantro to dipping sauce and set aside.
  • Using the basting sauce and a silicone brush, baste shrimp and place into the oven for 10 minutes, flipping halfway (this is why I prefer using skewers and not toothpicks).
  • After 10 minutes, remove shrimp from oven and turn broiler on to high. Carefully place rack under the broiler element, leaving enough room for the tray of shrimp skewers.
  • Baste shrimp with remainder of basting sauce.
  • Broil shrimp skewers for 5 minutes on each side, until bacon is crisp.
  • Let the shrimp cool slightly and serve with dipping sauce. Enjoy!
