Large shrimp tend to get rubbery when cooked. Grilling them is an excellent alternative. The bacon keeps them from drying out.

My dad showed me how to make this recipe. It is really good you should try dipping the shrimp in melted butter mixed with garlic powder before wrapping in bacon.

Try cooking the bacon a little before wrapping around the shrimp. This way you can be sure the bacon is fully cooked when the shrimp are done.

YUMMY!! I precooked the bacon in the microwave. I cut the strips in half and wrapped them around the shrimp, securing the bacon with a toothpick. Cooking them was a bit tricky. I had the shrimp in a throw away foil pan on the grill with loads of butter and garlic powder. I let the shrimp cook a bit in the pan then put them on the grill for a few minutes. I had to be careful that the shrimp was cooked through under the bacon, but didn't want them to over cook. It is a dish you need time to focus on.
