Ingredients:

5-7 thin slices prosciutto
1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (tail on or off)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
salt and pepper

(OPTIONAL) GARLIC BUTTER DIPPING SAUCE

1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, melted
2 teaspoons garlic powder
pinch of salt and pepper

How to:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

On a cutting board, slice the prosciutto into three long strips and then slice each of those strips in half. (You should have six long strips that are approximately 1-inch by 4-5 inches.) Wrap a piece of prosciutto around the body of a piece of shrimp, and lay it seam-side-down on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining shrimp and prosciutto.

Brush the melted butter onto the top of each shrimp. Season with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and opaque and the prosciutto is slightly crispy. Serve warm, with cocktail forks if desired.

TO MAKE THE GARLIC BUTTER DIPPING SAUCE:

Whisk all ingredients together until combined. Season with extra salt and pepper if desired, and serve warm.
