Pigskin Shrimp

This is such a simple recipe but everyone loves it! Of course, bacon makes everything better.



  1. Soak toothpicks in water while you are prepping.

  3. Wrap a strip of bacon around each shrimp and attach soaked toothpick to hold bacon in place.
  4. Preheat the grill on medium or low coals.
  5. Pour sauce into deep bowl that is wide enough to dunk the shrimp.
  6. Dunk each shrimp in sauce and place on the grill.
  7. Cook no more than 5 minutes.
  8. Dunk again and flip to cook the other side.
  9. Repeat the process until the shrimp is cooked and the bacon and sauce are a nice caramelized color.

You can take the heat down by substituting Sticky Sweet or dial it up using Sweet Red Devil Sauce. No rules just bacon wrapped shrimp.

Fun “finger” food for the big game

These meatballs can be served warm or left at room temperature safely for 2 hours. The recipe was a suggestion from one of our retailers, Jeanne at Siesel’s Old Fashioned meats in San Diego. The thumb is a finger and as we always say, *if you don’t lick your fingers, someone else will!

Thumbprint Meatballs

    The Meatball:
  • 1 lb. ground meat (beef, pork, turkey or veal)
  • ½ cup cooked brown rice (or dry bread crumbs or crumbed crackers)
  • 1 XL egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Sauce Goddess spice rub (Latin Heat, Sweet Heat or Moroccan Twist)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. Brush oil on a cookie sheet or use non-stick.
  3. Combine the meatball mixture in a bowl using your hands to completely mix all the ingredients together.
  4. Roll into a 1-1 ½” balls.
  5. Press the center of each gently with your thumb creating a pocket for the filler.
  6. Fill the pocket with a small amount of pepper relish (or other filling).
  7. At this point you can close the meatball and not see the filling or leave it open so it looks like a thumbprint cookie.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes until meat is cooked. Please on a paper towel to absorb any excess grease.
  9. Plate and enjoy.
