Everyone loves bacon-wrapped shrimp. Perfect for any holiday or occasion, they’re delicious, perfectly bite-sized, and so easy to make. Brushed with a yummy honey Cajun glaze for an unforgettable and perfectly balanced appetizer that is sweet, salty, and just a little spicy. Whether you bake, grill, or cook them in the air fryer, you can’t go wrong with juicy shrimp wrapped in bacon.
Start by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper and preheating your oven. You may also bake them on a baking rack placed inside a baking sheet. For easier cleanup, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Wrap each peeled and deveined shrimp with a one-quarter piece of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer with space between each shrimp.
Meanwhile, whisk the honey, olive oil, Cajun seasoning, salt, black pepper, and cayenne together in a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush over both sides of the shrimp.
Bake in the over, flipping halfway through. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and additional honey, if desired.
