Bacon Wrapped Shrimp a perfect Appetizer or Dinner Entre

Okay, so some of you may know that I’m allergic to shell fish. So about 3 weeks ago at the beginning of Lent we went to Costco my hubby’s favorite emporium at they had large prawns at $5.00 a pound. Which is unheard of. Now as I said before I am very allergic to shellfish but hubby and Miss J really want it so I agree and in the back of my head I thought your playing with fire. So my hubby assembled  and took pictures of this recipe with me directing him because even if I touch it there will be hives involved.  Well I didn’t touch anything I thought! But, in reality that was not the case I touched the faucets that had not been wiped down in my house and consequently, yes, I had an allergic reaction and ended up with hives. Needless to say the meal was enjoyed by my hubby and Miss J and I had a nice cup soup with a shot of Bennadryl.

  1. Bacon and shrimp... a match made in heaven. YUM!! Sorry you got hives in order for this post to happen, but very sweet of your hubs to help out.

  2. Oooh..hives bad, but this looks good. This same method around water chestnuts with a little gluten free barbecue sauce put on right at the end is also completely fabulous!
