  • 1 pound large shrimp peeled, and deveined
  • 7 slices bacon cut into thirds
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon chipotle powder plus more if desired


  • Wrap each piece of shrimp in a piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar and chipotle powder. Stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.
  • Brush 1/3rd of the the butter mixture over the shrimp, reserving the remainder.
  • Fire up your grill for direct and indirect cooking.
  • Grill the shrimp over indirect heat for 5 minutes per side. Move to direct heat then brush with half of the remaining butter mixture.
  • Cook a few more minutes until the bacon is almost done. Brush with the remaining butter mixture and cook another minute or two.
  • Remove and serve.


You can also cook the shrimp in a 400 F oven. Place under the broiler the last few minutes to brown the bacon.
