Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp

Jane Whittaker


To me nothing says the holidays like appetizers, we serve them, and bring them to holiday parties.
This appetizer was born out of my way to use shrimp. We live here in Fl right on the ocean and have friends that shrimp, so I am always dreaming up ways to fix shrimp
