Easy Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

This is a super quick and easy appetizer! It’s delicious. You can eat them as is or serve them on a delicious arugula salad. I would pair these shrimp with candied walnuts, blue cheese, and fresh oranges (if in season FIGS would be beyond delicious). A little lemon vinaigrette over top of the salad and you are good to go. A meal in itself! 

Alright… here we go! 

Ingredients: 

BACON 

SHRIMP (peeled deviated, tail on) 

APRICOT PRESERVES 

SALT & BLACK PEPPER (to taste)

Directions: 

Take your shrimp, wrap each one with half a piece of your favorite breakfast bacon. Place them on a baking tray and coat each wrapped shrimp with a bit of the preserves. Sprinkle with black pepper and salt  and bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 mins or until the bacon has crisped. ENJOY!
