These prosciutto-wrapped shrimp are baked in a fragrant herb-and-wine sauce.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 1/2
teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1
flat anchovy fillet in oil, finely chopped
1
garlic clove, finely chopped
8
uncooked jumbo shrimp in shells
4
thin slices prosciutto or fully cooked Virginia ham, cut in half
1/4
cup dry white wine
1
tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375ºF. Heat butter and oil in square baking dish, 9x9x2 inches, in oven until butter is melted.
  • 2 Stir together parsley, anchovy and garlic; spread evenly over butter mixture in baking dish. Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein. Wrap 1 half-slice prosciutto around each shrimp. Place shrimp on anchovy mixture.
  • 3 Bake uncovered 10 minutes. Pour wine and lemon juice over shrimp. Bake about 10 minutes longer or until shrimp are pink.
Tips  

Prosciutto is Italy’s answer to ham. (Prosciutto actually means “ham” in Italian.) Authentic prosciutto is ham that has been seasoned, salt-cured and air-dried.

Save yourself from lots of last-minute cooking! Make these appetizers in the morning, through step 2. Cover and refrigerate until 20 minutes before serving time. Then just uncover and bake as directed in step 3.
