I have seen a lot of recipes recently for shrimp wrapped in bacon. I have been super tempted by this combination, but with no parties coming up, and not being my husband's kind of food, they would just be for me to eat. And I really wanted to try the flavor combination, but without all the effort of wrapping shrimp. My solution? Cooking it all in a pan. With butter. Three ingredients are all you need to make this easy and delicious meal!

How to Make Buttery Shrimp with Bacon

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Trim the excess fat from the bacon to prevent it from overpowering the shrimp. Slice the bacon into 1″ strips. Add the bacon to the butter and sauté until it starts to go crispy.

Add in the shrimp. I've used tail-on shrimp (deveined, of course) because I actually like eating the tail. Depending on how you're going to eat the finished dish (or your own shrimpy preference), then tail-off shrimp may work better.  Sauté for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Grind some black pepper for seasoning and some chopped parsley for a bit of color and freshness, and serve.

This shrimp with bacon dish is pretty good just served on its own, to be honest. But you may like to add Miracle Noodles, steamed veg, salad, zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice as a side dish. Or it could be served as part of a tapas meal, or even my favorite option for pretty much everything I cook – wrap it in a low carb tortilla!

Can it be served on top of a plate of grit?
