Recipe Servings


1/2 cup MUSSELMAN’S® Apple Butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

6 pieces bacon

6 extra large shrimp or prawns, cleaned and deveined

chopped cilantro, for garnish


Preheat oven to 400° F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.

In medium sized skillet set over medium heat, add apple butter, maple syrup, red pepper flakes, salt and paprika.  Whisk together until mixture is thick and cooked down by half.  This should take about 10 minutes.  Set aside when done.

In large skillet, over medium heat, add bacon slices and cook just until browned but still flexible.  Remove from pan and drain on paper towel lined plate.

Wrap one bacon slice around each shrimp, secure with a toothpick and place onto prepared baking sheet.

Once all shrimp have been wrapped, baste the top with apple butter mixture.

Bake for 5 minutes then flip and baste other side of shrimp.  Bake another 5 minutes.  Continue to flip and baste shrimp (shortening cooking time between flips so you don't overcook) until shrimp is fully cooked and glaze is sticky and delicious.

Sprinkle with cilantro (if desired) and enjoy hot!
