    Vicki in CT's Note:

    Rosemary sprigs double as flavoring agents and skewers in this beautiful hors d'oeuvre. From Bon Appetit. Can use basil pesto if preferred. This recipe only uses half the pesto.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For mint pesto:
    2. 2
      Combine first 7 ingredients in processor. Using on/off turns, process until mixture is smooth. Add mint leaves and lemon juice; process until smooth, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl. Gradually add oil and process until mint pesto is smooth and creamy. (Can be made 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate.)
    3. 3
      For shrimp:
    4. 4
      Preheat broiler. Sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper. Whisk oil, garlic, and parsley in medium bowl to blend. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Arrange shrimp in single layer on broiler pan. Broil until opaque in center, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to large bowl; sprinkle with lemon juice and toss with 1/2 cup mint pesto. Starting at base end of rosemary, skewer 1 shrimp on each sprig. Arrange on platter and serve.
    5. 5
      Alternatively can stir fry shrimp instead of broiling.

      This review is for the pesto only. I served it on pasta and it was very tasty. The pesto was too thick so I added juice from the jalopeno jar to thin it down. For a less expensive alternative, I used sunflower seeds instead of the pine nuts. Thanks for posting this recipe, it's a keeper.

      Not only sounds delish -- this is just IT! Love the rosemary skewer, so creative and easy. Make the pesto over & over!
