Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

November 17th 2021

Fresh Dish Foodie, Dylan, is throwing together a last minute appetizer - Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp.

Make sure you’re using peeled & deveined shrimp and gently toss them in your prepared marinade. Wrap them in bacon and secure with a toothpick. 

Add some color and crisp by broiling 3-4 inches away from the heating element for about 5 minutes and serve while warm!
