Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Teriyaki

December 29, 2010

A great way to start the dinner with a sweet and spicy shrimp to have while your guests arrive or to serve at the table (I aim to keep my guests busy while I get things in order for great things to come).  Easy enough to get ready the night before and have ready at the very last minute with no effort.
