Tasty Tuesday - Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

I found this recipe on Simply Recipes and it's quickly become a favorite. I bet it's something that Thorne would enjoy making for Rosie!

Ingredients (serves two)
  • 24 large raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • zest from two limes
  • juice from two limes (about 4 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 8 strips thing bacon, cut in thirds to make 24 pieces
  • toothpicks
  • In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, and chipotle powder, mix. 
  • Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture, make sure each piece is well-coated.
  • Spread bacon pieces out over paper towel on a microwave safe plate and microwave on high until the bacon fat begins to render, but the bacon is still pliable, about 1 1/2 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around each shrimp, use the toothpick to secure the bacon on the shrimp
  • Place bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan lined with foil inside for easy cleaning
  • Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the bacon-wrapped shrimp
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes until bacon is crisp and shrimp is pink

It tastes great accompanied by Jasmine or Basmati rice.
