  • Set the oven rack to the center position. Preheat to 400ºF.
  • Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, black pepper, and chili powder in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add shrimp and stir to combine. Allow it to marinate for at least 15-20 minutes.
  • Cut bacon strips in half, about 4 to 5 inches in length.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Place the cut strips of bacon on the rack.
  • Roast until the bacon just begins to shrink and turn slight red in color, about 6 minutes. The bacon should be pliable and not completely cooked or crispy.
  • Allow the bacon to cool slightly until it's easy to handle because you will be using your hands.
  • Wrap each piece of shrimp with the par-cooked bacon strips, insert a toothpick to secure the wrap.
  • Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on the same pan with wire rack used to cook the bacon. Roast for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and change the oven to the high broil setting.
  • Carefully flip the shrimp over and then brush each piece with half of the sugar free maple syrup, sugar free honey or sugar free bbq sauce. Roast the shrimp for another 3 minutes.
  • Remove the tray from the oven, flip one last time and brush the shrimp with the remaining sugar free maple syrup, sugar free honey, or sugar free bbq sauce.
  • Broil until the bacon is deep red in color and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with scallion greens.
  • Serve with my Remoulade sauce, recipe here: https://ketowithmona.com/2020/12/01/keto-low-carb-remoulade-sauce/


You may make servings smaller as an appetizer. I have made it to 5 shrimps per serving as a main course. Serve along your favorite sides.
