Pigskin Shrimp

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.
  2. Partially cook bacon until no longer raw. It should still be very flexible, enough to be wrapped around the shrimp. Remove from pan.
  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.

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Interesting twist on the traditional grilled skewers.

  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or gluten free tamari
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or minced very fine (using a microplane is best)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup of Sauce Goddess Sticky Sweet Sauce (you can use Sweet & Spicy or Sweet Red Devil if you want)
  • 2 lbs pork loin or tenderloin, cut into 2” cubes
  • 1 red pepper cut into 2” pieces
  • 1 sweet onion cut into 2 “ pieces
  • 8 skewers

  1. In a bowl with a lid, mix the first 5 ingredients. Stir to combine. Taste for seasoning. If you like more salt, add more soy. If you like more tart flavors, add more vinegar. This is the time to adjust, before we place raw meat into the bowl.
  2. Pour off ½ cup of he liquid into a bowl for basting while grilling. That way this liquid won’t have any raw meat juices.
  3. Place the pork and veggies into container. Tighten the lid and shake to combine. Place in the fridge to marinade for 30-60 minutes.
  1. Preheat grill on medium heat.
  2. Place items on skewers alternating veggies and meat. Discard marinating liquid.
  3. Place skewers on the grill.
  4. Baste (with reserve marinade) and turn over as they brown. 3 to 4 times per skewer gets a nice even coat of sauce and browning.
  5. When the meat is done to 160 or fairly firm to the touch, remove from the grill.
  6. Serve with rice if desired.
