Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

1 1/2 pounds jumbo or large raw shrimp, peeled but tails on
1 pound bacon (not thick sliced)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups Zesty Italian dressing

If using wooden skewers soak the skewers in water for at least a few hours. Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap a half piece of bacon around each shrimp. Slide a few shrimp on each skewer. Place skewers in a shallow dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top. Pour 1 cup of dressing over the top of shrimp. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Preheat the grill. Grill skewers for a few minutes on each side. Grill until shrimp turns pink and bacon gets crisp. You can also bake these in the oven.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place skewers on a foil lined baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 15 minutes depending on the size of shrimp.  Bake until shrimp are cooked through and bacon gets a little crisp.  You can turn on the boiler and broil for a minute or two to crisp the bacon and the end of baking if needed.
