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.
