Bacon Wrapped Horseradish Shrimp

9 oz large shrimp (12 shrimp)
6 slices center cut bacon (I love the Oscar Myer)


Cook the bacon in the microwave for about 2 minutes. You want it to be pliable enough to wrap around the shrimp. Slice each strip in half.
Clean and devein shrimp, leaving the tails on. Then, cut down the back without cutting through. You don’t want to butterfly the shrimp, you just want to create a little pocket.

Place a scant teaspoon of horseradish in each pocket, wrap the half slice of bacon around the shrimp, and secure with a toothpick.


I have made them in the past wrapped in prosciutto and they’re good that way, too. With some very thin, fresh asparagus and some steamed new potatoes with parsley and butter, this was a great dinner that went together in no time at all.
