Maybe you're supposed to use the side burner on your gas grill outside? lol

Well, could/should we use bacon bits, yet doesn't the shrimp HAVE to cook at least briefly? Maybe the comment meant: "without turning on the oven?" Also the marjoram--hmmm I have to think about that, I like the touch of mustard if it is delicate. Maybe mustard seeds? J

Too funny - I was thinking the same thing - exactly how do I cook the shrimp and bacon without turning on the stove?

OK, so you do have to turn on the stove for a bit. (Unless you use defrosted frozen shrimp and "bacon bits".)
