  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 pieces extra-jumbo shrimp (size: 16 to 20 count per pound), peeled and de-veined
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in 1/2 (16 halves)

Directions
