Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp

Last night we hosted a party for my Eastside Dental Study Club. This was a Pizza Party at heart, but we also had several tasty appetisers. These Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp are relatively easy to make and are definitely a crowd favorite. I made a double batch; plated them and the sauce on a platter for easy passing amongst our guests.

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp
With Dill Dipping Sauce

16 Large Shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 Slices Prosciutto
16 small Bamboo Skewers
1 tbs. Olive Oil

Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for 10 minutes.

Cut each slice of Prosciutto in half, lengthwise, and wrap each Shrimp. Skewer each wrapped shrimp and lightly coat with olive oil.

Place on medium hot grill and cook for about 3-5 minutes, per side, until charred and cooked through.

¼ cup sour cream
2 tbs. chopped fresh dill
2 tbs. chopped chives
1 garlic clove, crushed
