Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon - Good for Bentos

This is a really simple bento dish. When my son goes on a picnic and needs to take a bento, I always make this because he demands I do so! The color is nice and the taste is amazing!


1 slice (or 2 if in halves)
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Peel and devein the shrimp and straighten them. Cut the bacon in half and wrap around the shrimp so the end of the wrap is facing down.
2. With the end of the bacon wrap facing down, put on a heatproof dish and sprinkle salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap or with a lid and cook in the microwave for 1 minute!
3. All done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making a roll with shrimp, which we love. I've been making this for 15 years. It always goes into the bento whenever there is a sports day or picnic.
