Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons good white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound large shrimp (13 to 15 per pound), peeled and de-veined with tails intact
  • 5 slices very lean bacon, sliced very thin


  1. Combine oil, vinegar, dill and garlic in a bowl. Add the shrimp and marinate overnight.
  2. Cut each slice of bacon into thirds and wrap a piece around each drained shrimp, securing well with a wooden pick.
  3. Grill over hot coals until the shrimp are cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.

Yield: 13 to 15 hors d'oeuvres

You can also grill them under a hot broiler, 4 minutes on each side, being careful not to burn the bacon or overcook the shrimp.
