Holy ______, Did I Make That?

Feast your eyes upon this mouth-watering dish: Shrimp and pineapple wrapped in lean turkey bacon. In this version, the juices and flavors from the shrimp, pineapple, and lean turkey bacon combine so magically that I did not add any other seasoning! Nothing!

The only change the fiance and I are thinking about making is possibly to marinate the shrimp in a garlic sauce beforehand. I'm sure it's not necessary, but the additional flavor could take this dish to another level entirely, if that's possible. This dish is called Holy ____ (Enter whatever you feel is appropriate), Did I Make That? due to its surprising simplicity and heavenly flavor.

This would be great as an appetizer, as a tapa, or as party food for entertaining.


Holy ____, Did I Make That?

1/2 lb. shrimp
1 10 oz. package lean turkey bacon (for guiltless eating!)
1/4 pineapple
20 wooden toothpicks (without coloring)
2 tablespoons oil

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan. Hold 1-2 pieces of shrimp together, and nestle a piece of pineapple where it fits the best. Wrap the shrimp and pineapple with 1/2 piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place each bacon-wrapped bite in the pan. Make sure to turn the finger food frequently. Cook until the shrimp is opaque and the bacon is crisp.

Depending on the size of your shrimp, this can make up to 30 bacon-wrapped shrimp with pineapple. If your shrimp is jumbo-sized, it will make closer to 10-12.

a buen tiempo!
