Game Day Spicy Shrimp
Posted by Tara
As Superbowl Sunday quickly approaches, I thought I would share a recipe that my family has made for several holidays and parties. This shrimp will knock your socks off. It's tangy from the BBQ sauce, spicy from the jalapeno, and wrapped in prosciutto. What more would you need? These will make great appetizers for your special Game Day party!
Your favorite BBQ Sauce
Prosciutto or Pancetta
First I start by rinsing my shrimp and peeling them if needed.
I slice my jalapenos in half and scrape out all of the seeds. The more veins and seeds you leave the spicier they will be.
I then slice my jalapenos in thin slivers, around 1/8-1/4".
Wrap your jalapeno slices on the back of your shrimp. You will have to bend the jalapeno around the shrimp.
After adding the jalapeno, wrap the prosciutto around the shrimp and secure it with a skewer or toothpick.
It should look something like this. I then toss them on the grill and let them cook 3-5 minutes on each side. Try not to let the prosciutto burn. When it looks like they are almost done, I coat each side in BBQ sauce. I chose Famous Dave's because it is my favorite, but use whatever sauce you like best.
This is an easy recipe and everyone will love them!
