This recipe for bacon-wrapped shrimp isn't just fancy because of the double portion of meat, but also because the sweet and spicy appetizer is glazed with apple butter. From the blog Nutmeg Nanny, the Apple Butter Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp is an ideal summer dish.

If you are interested in recreating this recipe at home, you will need apple butter (such as Musselman's), maple syrup, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, smoked paprika, bacon strips and extra large shrimp (super jumbo) or prawns. You can also add chopped cilantro as garnish, if that's your thing.

The glaze is "something to totally go gaga over." The mixture is sweet and spicy, plus the paprika makes it a little smoky as well.
