Ingredients

Shrimp
  • 16 large or jumbo shrimp (8 to 12 count per pound)
  • 8 strips bacon
  • Cocktail Sauce
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 splash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 splash hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish: Lemon wedges and chopped parsley
  • Chef notes

    Why do I love this recipe? One word: Bacon. 

    Technique tip: Make sure the folded side of the bacon is face-down on the sheet pan. 

    Preparation

    For the shrimp:

    1.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. 

    2.

    Spray a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray. Cut each bacon strip in half and wrap a piece around each shrimp, then place the shrimp on the sheet tray, with the folded side of the bacon down.

    3.

    Bake shrimp until the bacon is golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. 

    For the cocktail sauce:

    In a bowl, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, adjusting the heat level to your taste. Serve in a bowl alongside the shrimp with lemon wedges and chopped parsley.
