Soy-Glazed Shrimp Kebabs

All You JUNE 2008

  • Yield: 8 kebabs
  • Cook time: 22 Minutes
  • Prep time: 30 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$2.26


  • 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


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.
