We also enjoyed some fresh red snapper over the holiday that we had in the freezer from the big catch


HH got creative and used a sauce recipe from Weber’s Art of the Grill to jazz it up a little

It’s a brown sugar mustard glaze that is paired with salmon in the cookbook

But it was wonderful on the snapper fillets


HH cooked the fish on the grill on a foil lined pan in a bath of the sauce

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Chili Shrimp

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Course Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine American


  • fresh shrimp medium to large, peeled and deveined
  • bacon strips partially cooked until just beginning to crisp*
  • Asian Sweet Chili Sauce


  • Wrap shrimp with a piece of bacon. Cutting or tearing the strips vertically works well, the bacon is long enough to wrap the shrimp but not too wide to be bulky. Place wrapped shrimp on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover each shrimp with 1-2 T sauce. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes or until shrimp is pink and just done. Do not overcook or shrimp will be rubbery.


*Cook bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350-400 for about 15 minutes, checking often near the end so you can remove it before it’s cooked through. Drain on paper towels and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Cooking bacon this way results in strips that lay flat and are ideal for wrapping. The bacon will finish cooking when the shrimp are baked

  2. Jenna, shrimp and bacon are a good pairing anytime and the glaze sounds wonderful! I am a huge fan of red snapper! Happy Wednesday!

  3. Gorgeous red snappers and cute fishermen! How interesting to glaze with mustard. I will try it. Love the quick bacon wrapped chili shrimp. Who could resist?

    I ate dinner with some ladies a few nights ago and the one sitting across from me ordered bacon wrapped shrimp. They looked soooo good! Thanks for the extra nudge of inspiration. Yours look just as yummy as the restaurant’s version!

  5. I’d rather have great food than pretty pictures any day! Your pics make the shrimp and fish look yummy!

  6. Kitty says:

    No fancy photos are necessary, Jenna, as those shrimp look yummy just the way they are. I can’t wait to try that easy dish! You’re the best!

    I don’t eat seafood and barely eat fish, but your recipes (I’m sure!) are wonderful for the fish-lovers who read your blog. We were told by a business man (and not too trusty one, at that) that he was arranging a fresh lobster delivery to our house today. No word since last week, and FedEx already made their delivery. We’re not holding our breath! I love all your fish-painted items. Shrimpy-tails on your mugs made me laugh. So cute!!!

    • I didn’t eat the fish, but everyone was raving- I do like shrimp {but it has to be hot, not cold} and anything wrapped in bacon and smothered in a good sauce is pretty hard to beat! I love fresh lobster, I hope it shows up! >

  8. Jodi says:

    Yum. I want to come to this party!!!!! You had me at bacon wrapped shrimp.

  9. Oh it all looks way too delicious…and that brown sugar mustard glaze sound perfect for seafood!

  10. Emily says:

    Oh my goodness, all the yum here! Everything is better with bacon but everything looks delicious. Love all the artsy fish. Jenna, you don’t need fancy photograph for your posts, it is all gorgeous….

  11. Mary says:

    Pass the bacon-wrapped shrimp and the snapper my way Jenna! I bet that mustard glaze is good on shoe leather!

    P.S. I’m surprised you got any photos at all the week of the 4th 🙂
