Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (Prawns):

  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, to season
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 pound (500g) jumbo-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails intact
  • 14 slices bacon


  • Adjust oven rack on the top third half of the oven (just above half way). Preheat oven to broil (or grill) settings on medium-high heat (400°F | 200°C.)
  • Combine bbq sauce, soy sauce, honey, juice, garlic, oil and ginger in a shallow bowl. Pour out half of the sauce into a separate small bowl and store it in the refrigerator for later.
  • Add the shrimp to the sauce in the shallow bowl, season with salt and pepper and let marinate for 10 minutes if time allows.
  • Slice bacon slices in half lengthwise. Wrap one slice of bacon around one shrimp; repeat wih remaining bacon and shrimp until all done.
  • Arrange the bacon wrapped shrimp in a single layer on a lined baking tray/sheet. Broil (or grill) for 8 minutes until bacon is crispy and sizzling. Flip and broil for another 2 minutes until shrimp/prawns are cooked through.
  • Serve the shrimp/prawns with the remaining sauce.
  • Serve with guacamole!
