Total time
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 1/2 pound fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 Cup red onion, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon mango chutney
  • 1 Tablespoon rice-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Sambal oelek*
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 12 strips bacon strips, halved
  • 24 large shrimp, peeled, veined
  1. To make the sauce, in a food processor, purée the blackberries, onion, barbecue sauce, chutney, vinegar, sugar, sambal and lemon juice. Pass through a fine sieve to remove the blackberry seeds.
  2. Wrap bacon strips around each shrimp. Thread onto skewers, 6 shrimp per skewer. If using wood or bamboo skewers, make sure they've been soaked in water for at least 20 minutes prior to use.
  3. To cook, place the shrimp over a hot fire and grill, basting often with the sauce, until the bacon is cooked (the shrimp will be done as well).
*Sambal oelek (def.) is a spicy Indonesian chile paste and is available online or in specialty food shops. If not available, substitute Thai chili paste. You can make your own with this recipe.
