Now for something a little different. In English, it means Grilled Shrimp and Bacon Kebabs. But no matter what you call them, they are awesome!! I make them a lot and most of my kids actually eat them!
Brochettes de Crevettes
24 extra large shrimp (follow instructions below)
12 slices of bacon
juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon of honey
4 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or if you are a Rachel Ray fan – EVOO)
4 tablespoons of chopped cilantro, to taste
sea salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
Peel and devein shrimp. Leave tails on. Mix the lemon juice, honey, extra virgin olive oil (evoo), cilantro and salt and pepper together in a bowl. Add the shrimp and coat with mixture. Cut the bacon in half crosswise and wrap a piece of bacon around each shrimp and thread on metal skewers. Using either a gas or charcoal barbecue grill, grill the skewers for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve immediately.
