Prosciutto-Wrapped Scampi

Prosciutto-Wrapped Scampi

12 uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled deveined
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
3 thin prosciutto slices, each slice cut lengthwise in half, then crosswise in half
2 tablespoons minced Italian parsley
Lemon wedges

Combine shrimp, wine, oil, garlic and crushed pepper in bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.

Preheat broiler.

Drain shrimp, reserving marinade. Wrap 1 prosciutto strip around each shrimp. Arrange 3 shrimp in each of 4 shallow broiler-proof dishes, tucking ends of prosciutto strips under shrimp. Drizzle 1 tablespoon marinade over shrimp in each dish.

Broil shrimp about 6 inches from heat source until prosciutto begins to crisp and shrimp are cooked through; watch closely to avoid burning, about 6 minutes.

Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
