This easy and fun maple BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer is a quick way to either wow your friends with your creativity or accidentally skewer your mouth on a stray toothpick, depending on how many glasses of wine you’ve had prior to indulging. It’s a great starter for get-togethers and parties, and will please almost any carnivore you meet. Pair with my vegan jackfruit buffalo dip with garlic herb dippers to please everyone in the family, plant-based and meat-eater alike!

I personally recommend a nice thick-cut bacon for this recipe, because that will give you maximum crisp on each and every shrimp and be relatively easy to skewer. And buy the largest jumbo shrimp you can find! In a perfect world, I would love to try throwing these on an outdoor grill, but unfortunately we don’t have one to test that out. If you’re feeling adventurous, though, try skewering a couple of these bacon wrapped shrimp on a larger bamboo stick and grill them up over some hot coals! That would give them a delicious smoky flavor that’s hard to beat.

Ingredients:

  • 20-25 jumbo shrimp, tail-on
  • 10-15 strips bacon
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • toothpicks (to secure)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Cut each strip of bacon in half width-wise.
  3. Wrap the body of each shrimp in 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Place bacon-wrapped shrimp seam-side down on a wire rack over a tinfoil-lined baking sheet.
  5. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
  6. In a small bowl, melt butter. Mix BBQ sauce, maple syrup, chili powder, chipotle powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and mustard powder into the melted butter, and then brush onto each bacon-wrapped shrimp.
  7. Bake for 5-7 minutes, remove from oven to flip shrimp and baste with the remaining seasoned butter, and then return to the oven for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the bacon has begun to crisp and the shrimp are fully cooked through.
