There’s a trick to getting the cook on bacon wrapped shrimp just right. After all, shrimp becomes rubbery with too much heat. While bacon needs both time and heat for fat to render off and crisp up.

Tip number one: Use extremely thin slices of bacon.

Tip number two: Aim for a tight wrap.

Tip number three: Wrap the bacon in one layer, without overlapping.
