Butterfly Shrimp with Bacon is a retro recipe that has graced Chinese restaurant menus going back to the 60s, before I was born. Butterfly Shrimp with Bacon is made by layering bacon on a large butterflied shrimp, dipping it in egg, searing in a wok, and serving on a bed of savory ketchup-y onions. Serve this dish with some steamed rice, and you will wonder why you went so long without bacon wrapped butterfly shrimp in your life!
The first time I saw this dish prepared was by my father in a restaurant kitchen. He would butterfly all the shrimp, arrange them nicely on aluminum foil—six per order—and place slices of bacon on top of each shrimp. The shrimp then got wrapped flat on the foil, and were stored away in the freezer, ready for whenever a customer placed an order. It was one of my first lessons in restaurant preparation I also pre-made tons of egg rolls back in the day!
