Edible Summer – Quick Fix BBQ Shrimp

This summer I’m exploring food (well, all year, actually).  But, summer foods to me mean what’s in season, or cooked on the grill, or inspired by summer heat.  This summer I’ve been honoring the grill.

To start with, how about some jumbo shrimp, dipped in bbq sauce, wrapped in prosciutto and grilled (or baked) to perfection.  Shrimp reminds me of summer.  Try this, it’s very simple.  And, creates a very edible summer.

 Quick Fix BBQ Shrimp

Ingredients: Quantities are flexible based on your event

Shrimp – peeled (tail on), deveined

Your favorite bbq sauce

Prosciutto – thinly sliced

Directions:

Brush each shrimp with bbq sauce.

Take 1/2 piece of prosciutto and wrap around shrimp (will not be uniform, or fancy.  Prosciutto will form around shrimp as it cooks)

Throw onto a baking sheet, or low-flame grill. Cook until shrimp turns and prosciutto gets a nice crisp.  Doesn’t take long – you don’t want the shrimp to curl up too much (means it’s over cooked).  When I cooked this in the oven, it only took about 5 minutes at a high heat (450 degrees).

Enjoy
