    You actually don't need anything beyond some good quality jumbo shrimp and bacon; they were perfectly delicious paired on their own the first time I made them. That said, dressing them up a bit with some lime juice and chipotle seasoning adds some fun layers of flavor (think Remy in Ratatouille when he starts combining foods).

    12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    Zest from 1 lime
    Juice from one lime (about 2 Tbsp)
    1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
    6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces)
    Skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven)

    1 Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

    2 Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450F.

    3 Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of bacon around each piece of shrimp. If you are grilling, thread the shrimp onto long, flat skewers (flat skewers make turning the shrimp on the grill easier). If you don't have flat skewers, I've used two thin bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand) to the same effect. If you are using the oven, secure each the bacon onto the shrimp with toothpicks. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan (lined with foil inside for easy cleaning). Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

    4 Grill uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until shrimp is pink and the bacon is crisp.

    Makes 12 pieces.

    What the hell is chipotle powder? Too lazy to Google

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Oh, I love it. It's chili powder with a great smoky flavour. I use it a lot.
