Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp Scampi
This is an easy dish and a favorite of ours.
12 uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled deveined
1/2 c dry white wine
1/4 c olive oil
2-4 garlic cloves depending on taste
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
thinly sliced prosciutto, each slice cut lengthwise in half, then crosswise in half
2 tblsp minced italian parsley
Combine shrimp, wine, oil, garlic and pepper in bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
Drain shrimp, reserving marinade. Wrap 1 prosciutto strip around each shrimp. You can skewer shrimp and place in broiler-proof dish or place directly in dish. Drizzle 1 tblsp marinade over shrimp in dish.
Broil about 6 inches from heat source until prosciutto begins to crisp and shrimp are cooked through; watch closely to avoid burning - about 6 minutes!
Sprinkle with parsley.
Serve with a side salad.
