Cook time: 5 min

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Level: Easy

Ingredients

Juice of 1 lemon

1 clove garlic, grated

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon fresh thyme

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

1 pound (about 24) large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails intact

12 slices bacon, halved

Directions

Position a rack 3 to 4 inches from the heat source and preheat the broiler. Whisk the lemon juice, garlic, paprika, thyme, olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a shallow baking dish. Add the shrimp and toss to coat; marinate in the refrigerator, 20 minutes.

Turn the shrimp in the marinade to coat well. One at a time, remove each shrimp and wrap with a piece of bacon; secure with a toothpick if desired. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Spoon any remaining marinade over the shrimp. Broil, turning the shrimp once, until the bacon is slightly crisp and the shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
