DescriptionYou had me at "bacon" or maybe it was the "bourbon". Either way, this delectable appetizer is a party must. Bite-sized morsels of succulent, sustainably sourced shrimp baked to perfection with a blanket of crispy bacon and a maple bourbon butter glaze.
Maple Bourbon Butter:
- 1 stick salted butter, melted
- 3 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp hot sauce
- 2 oz bourbon
- Salt to taste
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp:
- 16 oz Aqua Star Shrimp, Peeled, Tail-On, thawed according to package directions
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 15 slices precooked bacon, cut in half
InstructionsPreheat oven to 400℉ (230°C). Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with oil or cooking spray. In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, syrup, hot sauce, and bourbon; whisk to combine. Adjust salt to taste.
Pat dry thawed shrimp, and lightly season with salt and pepper. Gently wrap each piece of shrimp with the precooked bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Place shrimp on baking sheet, drizzle glaze over each shrimp. Bake at 400℉ (230°C) for 7—9 minutes.
For air frying instructions repeat the same steps for preparing the shrimp. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer, drizzle with the glaze and air fry at 375℉ (190°C) for 4—5 minutes or to desired crispness.
Drizzle baked shrimp with the remaining maple bourbon butter prior to serving. Enjoy!
