Honey Dijon Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends!  Are you ready for the ball to drop, counting down to 2014?

I thought I’d drop (sorry) one more appetizer on you guys in case your night tonight calls for such a thing.  These prosciutto-wrapped shrimp are simple, delicious, and pretty enough for a fancy cocktail party.  The honey-Dijon sauce is both sweet and smoky, thanks to the smoked paprika, and the salty prosciutto takes it over the top.

Whatever your New Year’s plans, I hope you have a safe and memorable night!

Author:
Makes: 6-8 appetizer servings
Ingredients
  • 3 T. Dijon mustard
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • 4 oz. package thinly-sliced prosciutto
  • 1 lb. large shrimp (21/25 count), peeled and deveined
  • Salt & pepper for seasoning
  • 2 T. sliced green onions for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, honey, and smoked paprika. Cut the prosciutto slices into thirds, lengthwise. (This doesn’t need to be exact; just make sure you have enough pieces to wrap each shrimp).
  3. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel, place on the baking sheet, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Brush shrimp with a thick coat of the honey-mustard mixture.
  4. Wrap each shrimp with one of the prosciutto pieces. Brush prosciutto again with honey-mustard mixture, and place on the baking sheet.
  5. Roast for 9-10 minutes until shrimp are firm to the touch and the prosciutto is slightly crispy around the edges. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
