Chipotle Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

I have finally set aside my studies for the night. I was having too much fun. I mean...the muscularis externa sounds like a spell straight from a Harry Potter book. And the Crypts of Lieberkuhn sound like an adventure waiting to happen...right in our very own small intestines!

But that doesn't have anything to do with what we had for dinner tonight.

Chipotle and bacon. Two of Ryan's favorite things. Add shrimp and a dangerously fun way of cooking...and you get a delicious and entertaining supper!

Here are the little shrimps getting dressed up.

The best part of this recipe is that you literally light it on fire. While the shrimp is cooking, you make the sauce, pour in some whiskey, then light it! We were practically begging our smoke alarm to go off by making this. It did not fail us.

The shrimps are safely cooking in a separate pan.

The last step is grating lime zest into the sauce. I will have to wax eloquent about zest some other time...but it is magical.
