0min

Ingredients

  • 20 strips bacon (about 12 ounces)
  • 20 medium-large shrimp, shelled and deveined (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

Method:

  • Soak 5 to 8 bamboo skewers or several extra long cocktail picks in water for about 20 minutes to keep them from burning.
  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet until halfway done, about 4 minutes. Drain and cool on paper towels.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around the middle of each shrimp; skewer with bamboo through the point where the bacon ends meet to keep it from unraveling. If grilling and using skewers, thread 3 to 5 shrimp on each bamboo skewer. Or one shrimp on each cocktail pick.
  • Puree the barbecue sauce, oil, lemon juice, mustard, chipotles, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper in a blender. Set aside half of the sauce for dipping.
  • Preheat a grill, pan or broiler. Grill or broil shrimp (on a foil-lined baking sheet, if broiling) for 4 minutes, basting with the sauce once they begin to turn pink. Flip, baste again and grill or broil until just cooked through, about 3-4 more minutes. Serve with extra reserved sauce.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
