  4. Stuff each shrimp with 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture and wrap with a slice of bacon.
  5. Place the shrimp on a greased wire rack and place on the indirect heat side of the grill.
  6. Grill the shrimp for 8 minutes or until they turn pink and the bacon is browned.
  7. Spoon the honey glaze over your bacon and cheese stuffed shrimp, reserving the rest for serving.
  8. Cook the shrimp 1 minute longer, remove from the heat and then serve the shrimp with the honey glaze.

Tips

  • If you don’t like the glaze for your shrimp, you can serve them with hot sauce. We give you the option to choose the dressing of your preference to give that special touch to your shrimp.
