Lemon-Honey Shrimp with Prosciutto

Save to My Recipes

The saltiness of the prosciutto, the tartness of the lemon, and the sweet honey finish make this an elegant way to serve shrimp.

Difficulty: Medium

Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 20 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1¼ lbs. shrimp (21–25 count), peeled and deveined
  • 3 oz. prosciutto, very thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper

Directions

  • Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Cut the prosciutto into strips about 1½" wide and 2½ to 3" long. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around the center of each shrimp, pressing lightly to seal.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until the shrimp start to turn pink and the prosciutto starts to crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Season with pepper. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  • Add the stock, lemon juice, and honey to the pan and bring to a simmer. Add the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the pan and stir to coat the shrimp evenly, being careful not to damage the prosciutto wrapping. Heat through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
