Apple Butter Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

 

3/4 cup Musselman's Apple Butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

10 pieces bacon 

10 extra large shrimp, cleaned and deveined 

Cilantro, chopped, for garnish (optional) 

 

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 

 

In medium skillet over medium heat, add apple butter, maple syrup, red pepper flakes, salt, and paprika. Whisk until mixture is thick and cooked down by half, about 10 minutes. Set aside. 

 

In large skillet over medium heat, add bacon slices and cook until brown but still flexible. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel-lined plate. 

 

Wrap one bacon slice around each shrimp, secure with a toothpick, and place onto prepared baking sheet. 

 

Once all shrimp have been wrapped, baste tops with apple butter mixture. 

 

Bake 5 minutes then flip and baste other side of shrimp. Bake another 5 minutes. Continue to flip and baste shrimp (2 minutes each time) until shrimp is fully cooked. Do not overcook glaze as it can burn. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired.
