Spicy Baked Shrimp Ingredients
Cooking Directions | A Step-by-Step Guide

Step One | Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

Step Two | In a large skillet, cook the bacon until it’s evenly crisp - generally 10 minutes over medium-high heat.

Step Three | Once the bacon is fully cooked, transfer it to a paper-lined plate to help remove excess grease. After the bacon is safe to handle, dice into small pieces.

Step Four | In the skillet, melt the butter over medium heat in the leftover bacon grease.

Step Five | Once the butter is melted, add the following into the skillet:

● Bacon

● Spicy Mustard

● Red Pepper Flakes

● Garlic

● Chili Powder

● Thyme

● Basil

● Onion

Step Six | Simmer the ingredients over medium heat until the onion is tender - generally five minutes.

Step Seven | Carefully pour the wine and seafood seasoning into the skillet. Stir until the seasoning is evenly distributed.

Step Eight | Add the shrimp to the mixture and gently stir until the shrimp is thoroughly coated.

Step Nine | Add the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. TIP: Rub the dish with a stick of butter for an even more decadent flavor.

Step Ten | Place the dish into the oven and bake for roughly 20 minutes. You’ll know the shrimp are done when they turn bright pink and the meat is no longer transparent.
