I almost can end my post right there…this recipe is so simple!
Soak some wooden skewers in water.
Take raw large prawns, I buy mine devined and shelled, and put in a bowl.
Grate some fresh lemon zest over the prawns–you really don't need too much.
Drizzle a little olive oil in the bowl and gently toss the shrimp. Let it sit while you wash & dry the basil.
Wrap the shrimp in a fresh basil leaf and then wrap a thin piece of prosciutto around the basil wrapped shrimp. I like to start at the tail when I do this.
Then slide the wrapped prawn onto the skewer.
Place on broiler pan and you broil. Turn over when the prawn turns pink. It only takes a few minutes for each side, especially since the prosciutto is so thin.
Enjoy! The next time I make this, I'll add a photo to the post. They were gobbled up too quickly when my good friend came over for asparagus soup…another recipe I've been meaning to write about (what I did with my left over grilled asparagus).
