Prosciutto-wrapped Smoky Garlic Shrimp

Here’s another diet-friendly appetizer recipe that would also make a great light main dish.  Each shrimp weighs in at just 52 calories and about a half-gram of carbs.

I coated the shrimp in a mixture of Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard and light mayo, then wrapped them in strips of prosciutto and baked until cooked through.  The prosciutto gets a little crispy and the smoky mustard adds amazing flavor.  Serve these hot as an appetizer, or pile on a big green salad for a light dinner.

Prosciutto-wrapped Smoky Garlic Shrimp
20 large, peeled and deveined, raw shrimp (about a pound)
1/3 cup Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard
1/4 cup light mayo
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto

Pat the shrimp dry with some paper towels so the mustard mixture will stick.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray to lightly coat.

In a small bowl, stir together the mustard and mayo. Lightly coat each shrimp with the mixture (you can dunk each side, or use a pastry brush–I like to dunk).  Wrap each coated shrimp in a strip of the prosciutto (One full piece will cover about three shrimp).  Place on the prepared cookie sheet and repeat until all shrimp are wrapped.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Serves 8-10 as an appetizer, or 4 as a main course.

    My husband would this! I've done prosciutto wrapped asparagus and bacon wrapped shrimp, but never prosciutto wrapped shrimp. Great idea, thanks for sharing!
