BBQ Bacon Shrimp Skewers

This BBQ Bacon Shrimp Skewers recipe is great for dinner and they are so easy and fast. This is one of the simplest grilled shrimp recipes you can find.

We recommend using either Jack Daniels BBQ sauce for this recipe or my favorite, Original Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce. It is so good!

I love to have them with Corn-on-the-Cob. To me barbeque shrimp and corn-on-the-cob are perfect compliments to each other.

Feature Recipe


1 lb medium raw shrimp 
1 lb bacon
Your favorite BBQ sauce

If using wooden skewers be sure to soak them in warm water for about 1 hour. (this prevents them from burning during cooking,) I prefer to useCuisinarts 6-pc. Skewer Rack. It comes with 5 Skewers.

Cut pound of bacon in half. Cook until it is limp.

Peel and wash shrimp. Drain. Wrap one shrimp at a time with bacon and slide onto skewer. When skewer is full brush with barbecue sauce.

Cook on barbecue grill until bacon is done.

Place your finished Shrimp Skewers on a large oval platter and serve. Don't forget the extra napkins!
