Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Shrimp with Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier

bacon shrimp


  • 12- 12/16 count shrimp (peeled, deveined and tails on)
  • 1/2 lb.- quality hard-wood smoked bacon
  • 4 – wood or metal skewers


Preheat grill to medium. Cut bacon in half so you have 2 shorter strips per slice. Take half piece of bacon and wrap around shrimp totally engulfing it. Slide onto skewer (Remember to soak wood skewers in water, and even when well saturated the exposed ends still may burn apart. You can add tin foil onto the grill outside of the cooking areas where your wood skewer is exposed to the grill flames.) Slide 3 shrimp per skewer.

Grill the bacon wrap shrimp on the skewer for approximately 3 – 4 minutes per side making sure the bacon is cooked. If you’ve wrapped the shrimp properly the shrimp will cook slower and not overcook.

Slide cooked shrimp off of skewer and serve immediately.
