It may not be a classic shrimp cocktail, but this version takes the traditional and wraps it in bacon, then pairs it with a sweet and hot apricot horseradish dipping sauce. With a light beer or a glass of sparkling wine, this easy to pull together dish makes a great, fun brunch item for a group.

Microwaving the bacon before wrapping the shrimp ensures that both are cooked well without overcooking. You can also use this trick for wrapping scallops as well, and it works just as well on the grill as it does in the skillet.
