Bacon Wrapped Sweet Chili Shrimp Macadamia Recipe


Bacon Wrapped Sweet Chili Shrimp with Macadamia Recipe

This is a super fast and super easy recipe that everyone will love. It makes an impressive appetizer and is terrific for parties and special occasions.It uses pre-cooked bacon (found next to the regular bacon in the supermarket) to save time, but you can use your favorite bacon (pepper bacon would be great.) Just cook slowly over medium heat (or in the oven) until the bacon is cooked through but still flexible (not crisp)

Sweet chili sauce can be found in Asian grocery stores and in the Asian foods section of many supermarkets.
