Chili Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp


  • 1 ½ lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • ¼ tsp kosher
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • zest of one lime
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lb Fischer's Bacon, cut in halves


  1. Preheat grill on high heat.
  2. Put the shrimp in a bowl and season with chili powder, salt, pepper, Old Bay, lime zest, olive oil and lime juice. Toss to coat the shrimps well. Put the shrimp out onto a large cutting board.
  3. Wrap each shrimp in a piece of bacon and skewer. Brush skewers with olive oil to prevent sticking to the grill.
  4. Once grill is heated to ~450F, oil the grill grate. Add the skewers, reduce heat to medium-high and grill 5-7 minutes per side until bacon is done and crisped on the edges.
