Bacon Shrimp Recipe

Don't have time to wrap your shrimp in bacon? This bacon shrimp recipe is a great alternative. When is it done just sit the baking dish on the table and spread the newspapers. Make sure to serve it with some crusty Italian bread, to soak up all the sauce.

Make sure to leave the shells on, this not only adds flavor to the shrimp, but keeps them from drying out while cooking them.
