Hello ASG friends! I have been a bit M.I.A. lately. A lot has gone on in the last month and half.
My daddy passed away on 7.18.19 at 6:47pm. I know it not rational but I thought my dad would live forever. It has been super surreal but at the same time, I am lucky that he has given me numerous signs that he doing well. He is now in heaven. I will always miss and love my daddy.
I had this post photographed at the beginning of July and it just sat stored in my draft posts. Slowly I am realizing our new normal with out my daddy. It has been hard on my mom, but she is such a resilient person and is surrounded by our close family, so we are all supporting each other. Taking one day at a time, enjoying each day and remembering all of the good times is the best medicine.
I whipped up this super easy appetizer that has a touch point on all of the senses – hearty, salty, crunchy, smoky, sweet and a magnet to your eye with the textures.
BBQ BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP
12 jumbo shrimp (deveined)
1/3 cup BBQ sauce
4 crispy strips of bacon
1/3 cup crushed potato chips
2 tablespoon minced flat leaf parsley
Cook the slices of bacon until crispy and let cool. Over a small bowl break the bacon into small pieces and add the crushed potato chips. Toss and set aside.
Prepare the jumbo shrimp by deveining and pat dry with a paper towel. Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill. Brush each shrimp with BBQ sauce using a pastry brush and place on grill. Grill the shrimp over direct, medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, turning the shrimp halfway through the process. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp or else it will become tough.
Place onto a platter and drizzle a bit more BBQ sauce over each jumbo shrimp and then sprinkle the bacon potato chip topping on each. ENJOY!
