I love rumaki. Probably because I love bacon and essentially that's what rumaki is - a tidbit wrapped in nice crisp, smoky bacon.
This recipe is a twist on a basic rumaki recipe where the bacon is wrapped around shrimp. It's simple and tasty as the dickens.
You can opt to grill these instead of baking them in the oven - it's up to you. Also, you can wrap the bacon around water chestnuts and other goodies for some variety. The classic rumaki is bacon wrapped chicken liver - but I'm not going there!
I like to serve these with my What A Peach Martinis from The Martini Diva. The peach goes nicely with the shrimp and bacon and complements the smoky essence of the barbeque sauce as well. The combination of the martinis and these appetizers brings a little taste of sunshine and summer to come into the cold of winter. Put on your sunglasses and get out the sunscreen!
