Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.
Lay the slices of bacon out in a single layer on the pan.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bacon is partially cooked.
Cool for 5 minutes, then cut each slice of bacon in half crosswise.
While the bacon is cooking, whisk together the maple syrup, soy sauce, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl.
Remove 2 tablespoons of the marinade and reserve for later use.
Place the shrimp in the bowl and toss to coat in the marinade. Cover the bowl and chill; marinate for at least 10 minutes or up to 8 hours.
Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Wrap one piece of bacon around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick.
Place the shrimp in the oven and broil for 5 minutes, or until shrimp is pink and bacon is crispy.
Flip the shrimp and broil for 1-2 minutes more on the other side.
Remove from oven and brush with reserved marinade. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
