    Here's a rub I've used before that I really liked. I've also used Old Bay Seasoning that I kicked up with pepper, onion and garlic.

    Crab And Shrimp Seasoning

    Ingredients

    1 1/2 tb celery seed
    1 1/2 tb salt
    2 ts cayenne pepper
    1/2 ts dry mustard; Coleman's
    1/2 ts whole thyme
    1 tb paprika
    1 ts freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 ts ground ginger
    2 bay leaves; crushed

    Instructions

    Grind all ingredients in an electric coffee grinder of in a medium-sized
    food processor.
    Store in a covered container.

    I love bacon wrapped shrimp! We do large prawns wrapped in pepper bacon - and if you really want to kick it over the top brush them with real maple syrup! The combo of the sweet syrup and the salty bacon is heavenly! Or you can ommit the syrup and drape a piece of monteray jack cheese over them. Either way a simple but awesome way to cook shrimp.

    No I do that on a hot grill, so the bacon will crisp before the shrimp get overcooked and turn to rubber. That is another reason to use the larger prawns... cooking time is longer so the bacon has a little more time on the flame. As far as cooking time... sry never timed it, heh-heh. I just watch the bacon and flip/pull it when it starts to look brown.

    Hope you try them.. they are really good if you are a shrimp lover [​IMG]
