Bacon makes everything better, and this shrimp are no exception. One easy way to make this appetizer recipe even more flavorful is to marinate the shrimp before wrapping and cooking them.




  • Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry. Place in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Remove 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 3 Tbsp. juice from lemon. For marinade, combine lemon zest, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. chili-garlic sauce, and 1/4 tsp. of the salt. Pour marinade over shrimp. Seal bag; turn to coat shrimp. Marinate at room temperature 15 minutes, turning bag once.

  • Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small bowl combine remaining 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, the mayonnaise, green onions, and 2 tsp. chili-garlic sauce. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
