Lime Chipotle Shrimp wrapped in Prosciutto di Parma & Giveaway!

Since the frozen shrimp were on sale yesterday, I picked some up and knew immediately that I was going to use the Saucy Mama Chipotle Lime Marinade. When I got home and told my hubby what I had planned, he asked if I could wrap it in bacon. I told him that I could do better than that, so I went to the store today and picked up a few super thin slices of Parma Prosciutto.

I also had planned on grilling the shrimp however, Tropical Storm Danny caused me to wimp out and use the oven. I am glad I did as I can now share it as a year-round recipe.

16 shrimp (21-25 raw), remember to keep the tail on (I forgot)
3 Tablespoons Saucy Mama lime chipotle marinade
8 slices thin Prosciutto di Parma
12 cherry tomatoes
4 Skewers (I had metal but can also use wooden but soak them first)

1. Place thawed shrimp and sauce into a bag, mix well and marinade for 5 hours (or whatever time you have)

2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

3. Place a slice of the prosciutto flat on the cutting board and cut in half lengthwise.

4. Wrap each piece of shrimp with one half slice of the prosciutto and thread onto the skewer. Repeat for 4 pieces per skewer placing a tomato between each shrimp.

5. Place a baking rack into a baking sheet (my trick for crispiness and even cooking) and place the 4 skewers on the rack. Bake for 5 minutes, flip the skewer over carefully and bake 5 more minutes. If you want you prosciutto even crispier, then broil for 1 minute each side but do not overcook the shrimp.

I won a bottle of this from Kitchen M just last week! I'm thinking some kind of pork dish but your shrimp recipe has me thinking otherwise...

PJ Mullen said...

That looks great, might have to give it a shot. I love wrapping anything in prosciutto. It makes everything better.

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction said...

Looks delicious! It doesn't get much better than chipotle, lime, and prosciutto all in one recipe!

How did you like Saucy Mama sauces? We enjoyed those a lot and liked how spicy they were. The shrimp sounds awesome wrapped in bacon!

Mary said...

Your recipe sounds delicious. Pork, in any form, makes things taste better. Good luck with your giveaway.

I am so not a cook and part of the reason is I have no motivation for it, but this post makes me actually want to try!!! I love shrimp, so this really caught my eye.

I love finding new blogs! I am your most recent follower. :)

It's chipotle, not chipolte.

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh! J, this sounds delicious! I loooove chipotles and anything made with them and prosciutto is WAY underused. NOM NOM
