Scampi alla Griglia
(Grilled Scampi)

4-6 Servings


24 jumbo shrimp, deveined and shelled if desired
2/3 cup cognac
24 thin slices of fatty prosciutto or very lean bacon
24 fresh sage leaves
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
Lemon wedges for garnish

Marinate the shrimp in the cognac for 1 hour at room temperature. Drain and wrap each shrimp in a thin slice of prosciutto. Thread on skewers alternately with a sage leaf (or sprinkle shrimp with ground sage if fresh is not available). Season with salt and pepper.

When ready to cook, heat the grill or broiler until hot. Cook shrimp 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until prosciutto fat is sizzling hot. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
