Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

My friend Laura recommended this recipe site, and I found this shrimp recipe on my first visit. We had friends for dinner last night, so we made them as a quick weeknight appetizer. I can't believe how delicious they were for how quickly they were thrown together!

24 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
3 Tbsp olive oil
Zest from 1 lime
Juice from one lime
1 teaspoon chipotle sauce
12 strips thin bacon, cut in half (24 pieces)
Skewers for grilling

Place the bacon over paper towel on a microwavable plate. Cook on high for 1 1/2-2 minutes, just to slightly cook the bacon, but leave pliable. It will finish cooking on the grill.
Mix together the lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle sauce, then toss the shrimp in the mixture until leach piece is well coated.

Preheat grill to a high temperature.
Wrap a half piece of microwaved bacon around each piece of shrimp, and thread onto skewers. The recipe called for brushing the remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp, but I forgot and poured it down the drain once I had everything skewered. Oops!

Grill for approximately 10 minutes or until done.
I didn't take a picture, so here's the one featured on the recipe site.
Mmmmmm! Makes me want them all over again!
