Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp with Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce

Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp with Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce

Makes 4 servings
    • For the sauce:
    • 2 medium garlic cloves
    • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
    • 3 anchovy fillets (or 1 teaspoon anchovy paste)
    • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the shrimp:
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Lemon wedges for serving

Italian salsa verde makes an excellent accompaniment to meats, fish and vegetables. This bright and tangy sauce is a great condiment to have in your refrigerator during any season of the year.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

To prepare the sauce: Add the garlic, parsley, anchovy, capers and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to finely mince, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed. Add oil and pulse until well blended. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper; set aside.

To prepare shrimp: Place the shrimp in a bowl and toss with the oil, salt and pepper. Wrap each shrimp with a slice of prosciutto and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Transfer the shrimp to the oven and cook until the prosciutto is slightly crispy and the shrimp is starting to become firm, about 2 minutes. Using tongs, turn the shrimp once and cook until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes more.

Arrange shrimp on a serving platter and serve with salsa verde spooned over the top. Place extra sauce in a bowl for dipping. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
