Mango BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

(Makes 12 pieces)

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, diced (about 1 cup)

1 red pepper, diced (about 1 cup)

3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

1 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

½ teaspoon ground allspice

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

3 tablespoons molasses

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons lime juice

¼ cup tomato sauce

1 mango, pureed (about 1 ½ cups)

12 raw peeped shrimp

12 slices of bacon

Instructions:

Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, salt and pepper, and allspice and cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in the vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, and tomato sauce and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer the mixture into a blender and add the mango. Blend until smooth.

Cook the bacon on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet in a 350 oven for 10 minutes. While the bacon is still warm, wrap it around the shrimp and hold it in place with a skewer. Repeat for each shrimp.

Place the shrimp on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and baste them with the BBQ sauce. Cook in the 350 oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the inside of the shrimp is opaque and the skin is red in color.
