Take a shrimp appetizer to the next level with this easy recipe and Musselman’s Apple Butter.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium-sized skillet set over medium heat, add apple butter, maple syrup, red pepper flakes, salt, and paprika. Whisk together until mixture is thick and cooked down by half. This should take about 10 minutes. Set aside when done.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, add bacon slices and cook just until browned but still flexible. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Wrap one bacon slice around each shrimp, secure with a toothpick and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Once all shrimp have been wrapped, baste the top with the apple butter mixture.
Bake for 5 minutes then flip and baste other side of shrimp. Bake another 5 minutes. Continue to flip and baste shrimp (2 minutes each time) until shrimp are fully cooked. Do not overcook as the glaze will burn.
Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
