Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp

Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp

Talk about a ridiculously awesome recipe for not a lot of effort. This is a wonderful recipe to have for a party and a real crowd-pleaser. You don't have to worry about the lack of seasoning on the shrimp because the proscitutto adds it's nice saltiness and the smoky grill flavor is all you need to make this complete. Of course after the fact, I noticed Jen's suggestion of a balsamic drizzle would probably kick these up, but they were lovely as they were.

Today is the big move!! Luckily, I have some posts planned while I am getting settled in to my new digs. I am also planning a quickie (but hopefully fruitful) farmers market trip. It's the 15th anniversary of my beloved Beverly Hills farmers market! Have a great Sunday everyone.

Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp
(From Use Real Butter)

48 medium shrimp, peeled and de-veined
12 thin slices prosciutto

If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes. Slice the prosciutto lengthwise into four strips per slice to get 48 strips in total. Pat the shrimp dry and wrap a strip of prosciutto around the midsection of a shrimp. Secure (skewer) with a bamboo or metal skewer. Repeat for all of the shrimp. Grill over high heat for 1-2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
