This recipe is from Chesapeake Bay Cooking which specialises in shellfish and seafood recipes as well as the famous Maryland Stuffed Ham recipes.


4 or more large shrimp per guest
Thousand Island Dressing

  • Peel and devein each shrimp and cut 3/4 way through each along back (butterflying).

- or -

  • Preheat broiler setting at 475º to 500º.
  • Place shrimp on foil lined cookie sheet with wire racks inserted. Place cookie sheet at least 2 oven racks below broiler.
  • Broil evenly, turning until bacon is crisp golden. Keep careful eye on pan at all times and above all do not cook directly under broiler, as grease will ignite.
  • Serve each plate of shrimp with a small cup of ice-cold Thousand Island dressing for dipping.

The combination of hot (the horseradish), sweet (the dressing) and salt (the bacon) within this recipe is ideal.
