What a great recipe. I changed it a little bit to make it as an appetizer.I used a hickory apple rib sauce and added a liberal amount of Jim Beam, not too runny, and basted on the B.B.Q. for the alloted time. My son who hates shrimp, devoured it. No cheating, the prosciutto must be very high quality
