I have been making these for years. I marinate my shrimp in Italian dressing for at least 1 hour. I put them on the grill and let it flame up to crisp the bacon and steam the shrimp. Very delicious...make sure to take out all the seeds and the white ribs inside or they will be very spicy!
Serve with a spicy queso dip.
Yield: Makes 6 appetizer servings
