    Since this is from a Simple and Delicious, I expected something a little faster to make. Personally, wrapping shrimp in bacon, putting everything on skewers and then grilling it was a lot of prep time. Instead, I chop the bacon and cook everything in a big skillet with a teensy bit of olive oil and the 1/2 cup BBQ sauce the recipe calls for. It tastes pretty good and is really simple!
