2 inches fresh ginger root
2 tablespoons fresh lemon grass

Stir in the shrimp until well coated with marinade.

Let marinate for at least 10 minutes in the fridge.

Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Shrimp Recipe

Ingredients:
12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder, to taste
6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces)
Skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven)

Instructions:

Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

Spread the bacon pieces out over several layers of paper towels. Cover with another layer of paper towel. Microwave on high until the bacon fat begins to melt but the bacon is still pliable, about 1 1/2 minutes.

Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450°F.

Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of microwaved bacon around each piece of shrimp.

Grilling: Thread the shrimp onto long, flat skewers (flat skewers make turning the shrimp on the grill easier). If you don’t have flat skewers, I’ve used two thin bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand) to the same effect.

Grill uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes on each side

Baking: Secure each the bacon onto the shrimp with toothpicks. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan. Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

Bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until shrimp is pink and the bacon is crisp.

Makes 12 pieces.

Carb Count: 1.3 carbs
