Ingredients

1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
12 slices bacon (about 8 oz.)
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 ounces snow peas, strings removed
1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces

Preparation

Combine apple juice, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

While glaze is cooking, preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Lay bacon in one layer on top of cooling rack and roast for 15 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to cool.

Working with 4 slices of bacon at a time, stack them and cut into 8 one-inch squares. (You should end up with 24 stacks of 4 layers, or 3 stacks per skewer.)

Preheat broiler or prepare a charcoal fire and let burn to a gray ash. Thread shrimp onto 8 long metal skewers, alternating with snow peas, peppers and stacks of bacon.

Set broiling pan or grill about 6 inches from heat source. Brush each skewer with soy glaze and broil or grill, turning often, until shrimp is pink throughout and bacon is browned and sizzling, about 7 minutes. Serve warm.
