Ingredients

  • 10-ounce package frozen jumbo coconut shrimp, such as SeaPak
  • slices boiled ham or 12 slices pork or turkey bacon
  • 24  slices water chestnut
  • 2  Tablespoons  natural, creamy peanut butter
  • 1  Tablespoon  sriracha
  • 12  pineapple chunks, halved
  • Orange marmalade sauce (included in SeaPak shrimp package), defrosted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Cut the tails off of the shrimp and cut the shrimp in half crosswise.

Cut each slice of ham into 3 long strips. If using bacon, cut each slice in half crosswise.

Place a water chestnut slice in the center of each strip of meat.

Top each chestnut slice with piece of shrimp, a smear of peanut butter, drizzle of sriracha, and a pineapple slice.

Fold one side of the meat over the filling, then roll and place seam-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 5 minutes, then broil for 2 to 4 minutes, until bites are slightly brown on top.

Place a toothpick in each bite and drizzle with the orange marmalade sauce.
