  1. I tried this shrimp recipe today, and the bacon did not get all crispy by the time the shrimp were cooked. I used thick bacon, was that a no-no? The taste of the dressing and bacon were in the shrimp, yummy, but the bacon was not done all crispy. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Darlene. Next time try using regular, not thick cut bacon and make sure to use large or jumbo shrimp. Grill over direct heat until bacon gets crisp and shrimp turns pink.
