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.
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 24 pieces
- 24 thin bamboo skewers or toothpicks
- 12 slices pre-cooked bacon
- 24 cooked & peeled jumbo shrimp
- 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
- 1/2 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts
Cut each slice of bacon in half. Wrap bacon around the middle of each shrimp and secure with a skewer or toothpick. (Note: You can leave the tail on or remove it, as desired.)
Brush the wrapped shrimp with sweet chili sauce on both sides. Place shrimp in a broiling pan and broil briefly until bacon is lightly colored, turning once
Dip both sides of each shrimp lightly in chopped macadamias. You can return them to the broiler for a few seconds to toast the macadamias, but it's not necessary.
