    Morton coarse kosher salt 3 lbLemon ZestCharleston Seafood Frozen Peeled & Deveined Shrimp, 32-Ounce Box
  • 20 large frozen peeled deveined shrimp, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Cooking spray

1. Preheat broiler.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the shrimp, basil, olive oil, zest, salt, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Mix well and set aside.
3. Lay the prosciutto slices on a large work surface, and cut prosciutto in half lengthwise so you have 20 pieces. Wrap the prosciutto around each shrimp, leaving the tail hanging out, and thread on an 8-inch skewer. Repeat with remaining shrimp for a total of 4 skewers with 5 shrimp each.
4. Place the skewers on a broiling pan lightly coated with cooking spray. Broil the shrimp 2 minutes on each side. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
