  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • Salt to season

Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to grill (or broil settings) on medium-high heat, with rack on the top third half of the oven (just above half way).
    2. Combine sauces, honey, juice, garlic, oil and ginger in a shallow bowl. Season with salt (if needed); add the shrimp and allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
    3. In the meantime, cut bacon slices in half lengthwise. Wrap one bacon slice around each shrimp and repeat until all done. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on a lined baking tray/sheet. Grill/broil for 10 minutes until bacon is crispy and sizzling. Turn and grill/broil for a further 5 minutes until shrimp are cooked through.

    5. Serve the shrimp with the guacamole

As always, Keep the faith and keep after it!
