So this is an awesome recipe for Bacon and shrimp skewers! I love these when we are having a party I set up the veggie table, the bacon wrapped shrimp, some mushrooms, fruit and skewers and let everyone build their own! For a bigger party just double, or triple the recipe!
20 each Shrimp, 21-25 count, shelled, deviened
1/2 pound Bacon, partially cooked and cut in half
1 red pepper cut into thick chunks
1 green pepper cut into thick chunks
half pineapple sliced and chunked
1 lb of portobello mushrooms
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 ounces Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons chipotle pepper in adobo
1/2 teaspoon red chili flake
1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoons black pepper
5 to 8 bamboo skewers
Soak bamboo skewers in water, to keep from burning during grilling.
Cook bacon partially, cut in half, and let cool on paper towel. Wrap bacon around shrimp, and skewer with bamboo through the point where bacon ends meet, to keep from unraveling, build your skewer with the veggies, pineapple, and/or mushrooms. Skewer 3 to 5 shrimp per bamboo.
Combine all ingredients in blender, except bacon and shrimp, and puree. Separate the sauce in half, one for basting one for dipping.
Cook bacon wrapped shrimp on grill over medium heat. When shrimp begin to turn pink, begin basting with chipotle sauce.
