Cooks Note: Happy Memorial Day Everyone! I am sure everyone is looking for grilling recipes to kick off the Summer season, and here it is. I had some shrimp in the freezer and I was trying to figure out what to do with it, and BAM, Bacon! I seasoned them up, put some oil to make them juicy and give them more flavor and threw them on the grill. I served them with a nice green salad and some couscous for a healthy Summer meal. Try them and let me know if you like them. I know I will be doing this again soon. Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy!
