Very nice flavors. Prepared as written with the following exceptions. For the wine I used a white bordeaux. Since all I had was large shrimp, (16-20 ct) ,that was what I used. I also used toothpicks to hold the prosciutto onto the shrimp, a very nice flavor change from using bacon. I placed all of the shrimp in a baking dish and placed the reserved marinade around the shrimp, cooked as directed. The shrimp cooked up perfectly. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Directions

  1. Combine shrimp, wine, olive oil, garlic and crushed pepper in bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
  2. Preheat broiler. Drain shrimp, reserving marinade.
  3. Wrap 1 prosciutto strip around each shrimp. Arrange 3 shrimp in each of 4 shallow broilerproof dishes, tucking ends of prosciutto strips under shrimp. Drizzle 1 tablespoon marinade over shrimp in each dish.
  4. Broil shrimp about 6 inches from heat source until prosciutto begins to crisp and shrimp are cooked through; watch closely to avoid burning, about 6 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
