Preparing the Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp for the Grill

This is a great appetizer for parties because 90%of the work can be done ahead of time. Devien the shrimp and get them marinated so that you can wrap them with the basil and prosciutto and keep in the fridge until its time to grill.

Since shrimp cook so quickly you can have them ready to serve in about 10 minutes if you prepped them ahead and preheat the grill.

If your in a time run ch or really want to keep things simple you can use a store bought Italian dressing to marinate the shrimp.
