Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp Recipe

Ingredients

PROSCIUTTO-WRAPPED SHRIMP

  • 5-7 thin slices prosciutto
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (tail on or off)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • salt and pepper

(OPTIONAL) GARLIC BUTTER DIPPING SAUCE

  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions

TO MAKE THE PROSCIUTTO-WRAPPED SHRIMP:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. On a cutting board, slice the prosciutto into three long strips and then slice each of those strips in half.  (You should have six long strips that are approximately 1-inch by 4-5 inches.)  Wrap a piece of prosciutto around the body of a piece of shrimp, and lay it seam-side-down on a parchment-covered baking sheet.  Repeat with the remaining shrimp and prosciutto.
  3. Brush the melted butter onto the top of each shrimp.  Season with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and opaque and the prosciutto is slightly crispy.  Serve warm, with cocktail forks if desired.

TO MAKE THE GARLIC BUTTER DIPPING SAUCE:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together until combined.  Season with extra salt and pepper if desired, and serve warm.
