Grilled Bacon Wrapped Shrimp w/ Spicy Cajun Sauce

With the summer in full swing here in Cajun country, I love to cook dinner out on the patio, on the grill most every evening. Grilling is so quick and easy that you can whip up the whole meal from the entree right down to the sides and bread in a half an hour or less. Plus it keeps the heat out of the kitchen.  Gulf shrimp wrapped with bacon, and basted in  a spicy chipotle-garlic sauce, Cest bon, cher! Enjoy!

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Shrimp w/Spicy Cajun Sauce

1 pound large (24 count) shrimp
12 slices of bacon
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2  cup honey
1/2 cup Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce
1 tbs. Creole mustard


Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around shrimp securing it with a toothpick and place shrimp on skewers and set aside.

Combine all other ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Keep warm until ready to use.

Place skewers on a pre-heated medium grill and baste with sauce and grill for 3 minutes. Flip skewers and baste again and cook for 3 more minutes. Serve with extra sauce for dipping. Fab!

Serve with my Cajun Grilled Corn on the Cob




And my Creole Garden Pasta Salad














And maybe a Cajun Margarita or two...













A Cajun Waltz

Here's a little clip of the crowd enjoying a Cajun waltz played by Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin' Cajuns at the weekly Sunday afternoon dance at Whiskey River Landing in Henderson. We'll be headed out to the Atchafalaya Basin tomorrow for a little Cajun fun on the swamp and dancin' at Whiskey River dance hall. Let the good times roll, cher!



Wishing all of you a fun filled summer weekend! Merci for stopping by!

Gosh, I was so-oo-oo hungry, I was waiting nearly 2 weeks since your last post LOL. I just love bacon and have never had it combined with shrimps before - your recipe sounds very tasty.

Loved the video too.
