  • Make thin slit in the back of each shrimp, being careful not to cut all the way through.

  • Tuck 1 basil leaf into the opening of each shrimp, followed by 1/2 teaspoon of goat cheese. Wrap 1/2 of a prosciutto slice around each shrimp from bottom to tail.

  • Arrange stuffed shrimp on a baking sheet. Brush each lightly with olive oil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until shrimp is pink and prosciutto is crispy, 4 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

These can also be grilled over medium-high heat.

If you want to splurge on larger shrimp, 8- to 10-count are great. You made need to increase to 2 basil leaves, 1 teaspoon goat cheese, and a full slice of prosciutto per shrimp.
