Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Pepper Jam Glaze

Recipe by Christin Mahrlig

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Rollicking Buckaroo Pepper Jam Glaze make a wonderful party appetizer. The pepper jam glaze adds a little sweetness plus some heat.


1/3 cup medium pepper jam

2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1-pound large fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on if desired

1/2-pound bacon, each piece cut in half lengthwise


In a small bowl, stir together pepper jam, oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

Wrap a piece of bacon around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick.

Heat a 12-inch cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in pan and cook 2 minutes. If you don't have a cast iron skillet, just use a nonstick pan.

Flip shrimp over, brush with pepper jam mixture and cook until cooked through, about 2 more minutes.

Remove toothpicks and serve.
