Bacon-wrapped shrimp and a tangy mayonnaise sauce make this appetizer, which is fun to serve at Halloween.


Devils on Horseback
Recipe from 
Servings: 48 skewers
Total Time: 1 hr
    48  large  shrimp (approximately 2 lbs.. - with shells), shelled and deveined
    1/4  cup  dry white wine
     teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
     to 1-1/2 teaspoons  prepared garlic chili sauce
    1/2  teaspoon  salt
     strips  bacon, quartered (in half lengthwise and then again cross), flattened with the back of a knife to prevent curling
        Wooden toothpick
    2/3  cup  mayonnaise
     tablespoons  lemon juice
     tablespoon  prepared chili garlic sauce
     teaspoon  salt
       green onion, finely chopped (both white and green parts)
Combine shrimp, wine, lemon peel, 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce, and salt in non-reactive dish. Marinate for 15 minutes. Remove shrimp and drain on paper towels; discard marinade. Wrap each shrimp in a piece of bacon, securing bacon by skewering shrimp with wooden toothpick (neck to tail in a half-moon).
Preheat broiler. (Position oven rack so the food will be 3 to 4 inches from the heat.) Place shrimp in a single layer on an unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil, turning twice, until shrimp are opaque and bacon is cooked through and crisp (7 to 9 minutes total).
For Remoulade, stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon prepared chili garlic sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, and green onions. Cover and chill until serving time.
If desired, thread broiled shrimp onto fondue forks or 8 to 10-inch wooden skewers. Serve shrimp with sauce. Makes 48 shrimp (12 to 16 servings).
