Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp

Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp


For the vinaigrette:

  • In a bowl, whisk the honey, mustard, lime zest and juice together.
  • Add the sunflower oil, a little at a time, while continuously whisking so that the vinaigrette thickens and comes together nicely. Season to taste. If you like a strong lime taste, add more lime juice.
  • When ready, set aside and prepare the shrimp.

For the shrimp:

  • If using frozen shrimp, defrost them under running water for about 7-8 minutes. When defrosted, strain and start to peel the shrimp by removing the heads. Do not remove the tail since it makes for a nicer presentation.
  • Use a small sharp knife to cut along the outer edge of the shrimp’s back to remove the vein.
  • Make the cut you already made deeper, all the way to the tail, to butterfly the shrimp. Don’t’ cut all the way through, just deep enough so that the shrimp’s body divides into 2 connected halves, like a butterfly.
  • Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with some freshly ground pepper. Put in a bowl and set aside.
  • Lay a slice of prosciutto on a clean working surface.
  • Sprinkle the whole slice with some grated parmesan. Position a shrimp on the slice of prosciutto, placing the cut side down. Start to roll the shrimp with the prosciutto, making sure you do not roll tightly. Roll loosely; allowing enough air to remain between the shrimp and the prosciutto so that the end result is fluffy.
  • Repeat the same process for all of the shrimp. Heat a pan over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When hot (but not too hot), add the shrimp in batches, making sure the edge of the rolled prosciutto is place downward.
  • When the first side turns golden, turn each shrimp over and cook until golden also.
  • If your pan is too hot and the prosciutto turns golden too quickly, lower the temperature to medium.
  • You want the shrimp to be cooked properly also.
  • Serve with lime vinaigrette.
