1

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

2

In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, ketchup, sugar, vinegar and garlic powder until mixed well. Set aside.

3

Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Take one-half slice bacon and coat it in the sauce. Wrap the sauce-covered bacon around a shrimp and place it, seam side down, on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the bacon and shrimp. Give them a quick mist with nonstick spray.

4

Bake in the oven until the shrimp are cooked through and the bacon is crispy, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.

Adapted from “Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200: 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories” by Lisa Lillien. Lillien writes, “This is a fantastic party recipe. The shrimp, bacon and BBQ sauce combo makes it nearly impossible for anyone to believe that these are guilt-free in any way. Yet each one has less than 30 calories!”.
