Prosciutto-Wrapped Chili Shrimp with Green Onions


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 4 scallions, white parts finely chopped and green parts thinly sliced on an angle, divided

  • 1 Fresno chili pepper, finely chopped, or 1 1/2 teaspoons ground red pepper

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 16 jumbo shrimp, tails on and deveined

  • 16 thin slices prosciutto


Heat a grill or grill pan to medium.

Combine the EVOO, scallion whites, chili pepper and lemon juice in a medium size bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Wrap each shrimp with a slice of prosciutto and thread onto a skewer.

Grill the shrimp until firm and opaque, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the scallion greens and another squeeze of lemon juice.
