Directions

Fry one side of bacon so one side is almost done but not crispy. Start charcoal. Coat tilapia with egg white then l1berally coat with Old Bay seasoning and macadamia nuts. Lightly dust with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Set aside and then season shrimp with Old Bay. Wrap shrimp with half a piece of bacon, making sure the uncooked side faces out. Poke with a toothpick and repeat for all shrimps. BBQ both, but close lid and vents to prevent grease fire. Turn both after about 3 minutes. When bacon is mostly done remove the shrimp and place it on foil. Cover with cheese and return shrimp to bbq until cheese is melted. Remove tilapia when It flakes easily. Serve with lemon.
