These Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp sound fancy, but they're not hard and they're so, so delicious! Open wide for these babies. You're gonna love 'em!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vermouth
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16 jumbo fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 8 (6-inch) wooden skewers
  • 16 (1-inch by 8-inch) slices prosciutto

What to Do

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag. Add shrimp; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning once.

  2. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in water to cover at least 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to broil. Remove shrimp from marinade, discarding marinade. Wrap 1 piece prosciutto around each shrimp. Thread 2 shrimp onto each skewer. Place skewers on rack of a lightly greased broiler pan. Broil 5-1/2 inches from heat 7 to 9 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning once.


Vermouth imparts such a distinctive flavor that I'd rather not offer a substitute, so this is an adults-only recipe, folks. Also, be careful not to marinate the shrimp too long-it'll make 'em tough.
