Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp

Recipe from: Recipes 1-2-3 Menu Cookbook by Rozanne Gold
Servings: 4

48 medium uncooked shrimp, 1 ½ pounds in their shells
¾ pound thinly sliced prosciutto
3 tablespoon olive oil
black pepper

You will need 8 (6-inch) bamboo skewers.

Preheat broiler. Peel shrimp, removing tails. Uncurl shrimp and wrap a small slice of prosciutto snugly around each to cover completely. If prosciutto slice is too long, cut in half before wrapping. Skewer 6 shrimp so that they are parallel to one another and closely packed. Fill 8 skewers. Place skewers on shallow baking sheet. Using pastry brush, brush oil on each side to coat prosciutto. Place under broiler and broil 20 seconds. Turn shrimp over and broil 20 to 30 seconds. Do not overcook. Serve immediately, 2 skewers per person. Drizzle with extra olive oil, if desired. Pass the pepper mill.
