Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

1. Preheat the oven to 350

2. Lay the long strips of bacon on a jelly roll pan in a single layer, doing only as many as will fit in at a time. bake for about 10 minutes, or, until they are partially cooked. They will release some of the, moisture, fat, and be soft. DO NOT cook until they're fully cooked or you won't be able to wrap them.

3. Cut the bacon into quarters, warp each quarter around one shrimp, and secure with a toothpick.

4. Make up the rub, by mixing together the blacken, sugar and salt, then coat the wrapped shrimp with this mixture.

5. These can be done the morning of your party and left in the refrigerator in a plastic bag until you're ready to cook them.

6. To Cook:

Bake at 350 for 10 - 15 minutes. Place either parchment paper, or a rack in a sheet pan (jelly roll pan), or both. This will make cleanup a lot easier. Be sure to use a pan with a lip on it to catch the extra bacon fat that will be released from the bacon. Grizzle a little lemon on just before serving.
