INGREDIENTS:

  • 24 thin bamboo skewers or toothpicks
  • 12 slices pre-cooked bacon
  • 24 cooked & peeled jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Soak the skewers or toothpicks in water for about 5 minutes.

  2. Cut each slice of bacon in half. Wrap bacon around the middle of each shrimp and secure with a skewer or toothpick. (Note: You can leave the tail on or remove it, as desired.)

  3. Brush the wrapped shrimp with sweet chili sauce on both sides. Place shrimp in a broiling pan and broil briefly until bacon is lightly colored, turning once

  4. Dip both sides of each shrimp lightly in chopped macadamias. You can return them to the broiler for a few seconds to toast the macadamias, but it's not necessary.
