In the past few days, I had been cooking up a storm in the kitchen as I am traveling on the road now and had to use up all the leftover ingredients in the fridge. The thing about being a food blogger is that I constantly have A LOT of random ingredients sitting in the fridge…many of them barely used and I have numerous leftover items. My fridge is always packed.
Some of the item are bacon, lemon, and shrimp. I immediately thought about using the leftover ingredients to make these wonderful bacon-wrapped shrimp, a recipe I bookmarked on the Food & Wine magazine. This is such a great idea for the weekends, for gameday, or simply as an appetizer to feast on.
