Grilled Shrimp Wrapped with Prosciutto & Basil

  • 12 medium shrimp, peeled off, tail on
  • 6 prosciutto slices, cut ½ lengthwise
  • 12 fresh basil leaves, whole
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch black pepper, fresh ground
  • 12 picks/bamboo skewers


Peel shrimp and keep them ice cold. On a clean, dry cutting board, lay prosciutto out flat. Put basil leaf on prosciutto at one end. Place shrimp on basil lengthwise. Roll up shrimp so it's wrapped in the prosciutto and basil.

Put vinegar and oil in a shallow dish. Roll shrimp in vinegar and oil to coat. Skewer with picks or bamboo skewers. Season wrapped shrimp with black pepper.

Grill over medium-hot heat until prosciutto is crispy and shrimp is cooked through. Serves well accompanied with pasta and fresh marinara sauce.
