Here's an easy recipe for grilled shrimp that has to be one of the best that Cajun Country has to offer. It's very simple, yet packed with flavor, creating a smoky, spicy taste with the bacon that just melts in your mouth. Since I've had so many requests for this mouth watering recipe, I've decided to post it. These shrimp are divinely delicious and can be served with some yummy grilled veggies or a big garden salad, a loaf of good bread, and a glass of white wine. Oh, cest bon! Bon Appetit!
Cajun Grilled Shrimp En Brochette
24 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tbs. or more Cajun seasoning
1 lemon, cut in half
12 bacon strips, cut in half
Squeeze lemon juice to coat shrimp. Season with Cajun seasoning. Wrap each shrimp with a piece of bacon. Place on skewers and chill for 15 minutes. Baste with melted butter and bbq sauce and grill on medium low heat, in grill pan, for 5 minutes. Turn, baste and grill for 5 more minutes, or until bacon is crisp. My Dad says that these fabulous shrimp are sinful and should be against the law! Enjoy!
