    Wow. this was amazing. I made this as an accompaniment with lobster tail and it was wonderful. There were leftovers and I was able to pop them back into the oven for 10 minutes and it was just as wonderful as the day I made them. This is definitely a keeper.

    This was a wonderful way to serve shrimp. I used a large silver platter and in the center I put a snowman candle and around it like a wreath I set the Asian soup spoons. The shrimp was easy to make and got excellent reviews. A real keeper and not for holidays only.

    These look great! I was looking for a good, and simple recipe and here it is. Can't wait to make them.

    We have made these many times. Everyone always loves! Do NOT buy the cheap bacon. The strips have a lot of fat and ruin the recipe.

    Well, this was great as an appetizer. I used jumbo shrimp which made a few mouthfuls. Used herbed goat cheese in the cavity to make the basil stick and wrapped in proscuitto with a dab of goat cheese at each end to help the wrap stay on the shrimp. Great eveyone loved 'em. Will make again for sure!

    Had this on Christmas Eve at the in-laws and could not keep my hands off of them! Looking forward to making this recipe for Superbowl Sunday. Absolutely delicious!!

    I've made these too many times to count, and they are always delicious! I use Morningstar soy bacon to lighten the recipe and serve with Luau BBQ sauce.

    I made this for a girl's night and they were a huge hit. They all wanted the recipe. I took the advice of one of the reviewers and used proscuitto. It made the shrimp more costly, but worth it!

    I made these for a dinner party, and they were a hit, everyone really liked them. I brushed them with garlic butter instead of bbq sauce and they turned out great!

    Outstanding!!! Substitute thinly sliced proscuitto for bacon to cut down on fat.

    Yum! I made these for girl's night as appetizers. I forgot to add the bbq sauce and so we dipped the shrimp in a warmed up raspberry bbq sauce that my girlfriend had at her house. The girls raved about them! And two days later they were sending me emails telling me that they were dreaming of them b/c they were so good. I will definitely make them again - especially when shrimp is on sale! I recommend getting the least fatty bacon you can find, I ended up cutting off a lot of fat from what I had bought.

    delicious! Quick and easy prep, but looks and tastes gourmet. Will definitely do again, although next time I will try with prosciutto as other reviewers have recommended.

    Easy to make and VERY tasty. I served it as an appetizer & it was a huge hit with my entire family, even the kids. I added a small amount of herbed goat cheese as suggested by another reviewer. I will definitely make this again.

    I made this and it was a great hit. I used chive and onion cream cheese to hold the garlic and basil in place. I also tried this with Prosciutto sliced thin and it was very easy to wrap compared to the bacon. Will make it again. When it's placed out it is gone before you know it.

    These are fabulous. You may also want to try stuffing the shrimp with horseradish, wrap with bacon and brush with BBQ sauce.......YUMMY!
