Rachael Ray's Shrimp with Sage & Prosciutto, Warm Escarole Salad, and White Beans

Wrapping shrimp in prosciutto, like I did in this dish, is one of the first recipes my mom taught me.

Ingredients

  • 20 to 24 peeled, deveined large shrimp, tails on

  • Salt and pepper

  • 3 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 4 large cloves garlic, grated or chopped

  • 20 to 24 leaves fresh sage

  • 20 to 24 thin slices prosciutto di Parma, fat trimmed

  • 3 oz. pancetta, finely chopped

  • 1 medium white or yellow onion, quartered and thinly sliced

  • 1 can (about 15 oz.) cannellini beans, drained

  • 1 large head escarole, coarsely chopped

  • About 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1 tbsp. sherry vinegar or white balsamic vinegar

  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 1/4 cup)

Preparation

Step 1

In a medium bowl, season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Drizzle with oil. Mix in half the garlic. Let marinate for 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 2

Working with 1 shrimp at a time, place 1 sage leaf lengthwise along the back of the shrimp. Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around the shrimp, overlapping the prosciutto as you go.

Step 3

In a large skillet, heat about 1/2 tbsp. oil, a half turn of the pan, over medium-high. Add the shrimp. Cook until the shrimp are just opaque in the centers and the prosciutto slices are crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.

Step 4

In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 1/2 tbsp. oil, about two and a half turns of the pan, over medium-high. Add the pancetta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the fat begins to render, about 2 minutes. Add the onion and the remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the beans and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the escarole and nutmeg; season. Cook, tossing often, until the escarole is just wilted, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the vinegar and lemon juice. Arrange the salad in shallow bowls. Top with the shrimp.
