Prosciutto-wrapped shrimp with Marsala glaze

According to the original recipe I picked up in Food & Wine, these shrimp were supposed to be grilled. I improvised and broiled them instead, and the result was still pretty good. I mean, c’mon. There’s crispy prosciutto involved. Need I say more?

Prosciutto-wrapped shrimp with Marsala glaze


1 1/2 cups dry Marsala
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
About 10 prosciutto slices, cut length in half
15 large uncooked shrimp, peeled
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1. Boil first 2 ingredients in saucepan until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes. Cool glaze 15 minutes.

2. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place one prosciutto strip on work surface. Dip 1 shrimp into glaze, place at one end of strip. Sprinkle with thyme and wrap prosciutto around shrimp. Dip into glaze and place on platter. Repeat with remaining prosciutto, shrimp, and thyme and glaze as needed. Broil shrimp in oven for 2 minutes, turn shrimp over, and brush with glaze again. Broil about 3 minutes longer.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Arman Nafisi-Movaghar and I am currently doing an undergraduate honors research study for the Department of Communication at the University of Washington on blogs by Iranians living outside of Iran. I am interested in seeing how Iranians in the diaspora are using their blogs and specifically if they are promoting democratic values on their blogs. To help answer this question, I created a survey for Iranian bloggers living outside of Iran to complete. Since you are an Iranian living outside of Iran who maintains a blog, I would like to invite you to take my survey. The purpose of the following paragraphs is to give you the information you will need to help you decide whether or not to participate in the survey. Please read this information carefully.

    To see how Iranians in the diaspora are using their blogs and specifically if they are promoting democratic values on their blogs.

    My survey asks a few demographic questions regarding age, gender, and education level. In addition, my survey also will ask for your opinion about democracy and whether you think blogs can be used to promote democracy in Iran. The survey is short and will only take 15-20 minutes to complete. You are also free to skip any question on my survey that you don’t want to answer.

    This survey is anonymous. Thus, your responses are not linked to your name. In addition, the survey answers will be confidential and will not be seen by anyone else.

    Expected Benefits:
    To understand if and/or how Iranians in the diaspora are using blogs to communicate with Iranians inside Iran. I also hope to discover if Iranians are using their blogs to promote democratic changes in Iran. If you would like to see the results of the survey at the conclusion of my study, feel free to contact me and I will email them to you.

  2. You mean for the lentil salad a couple of posts above? I used beluga lentils but urad would definitely work as well.

  3. shrimp = kicked butt. stroganoff = kicked butt too.

    but if they got in a bar fight with one another, i’d guess that the shrimp’d win.
