Yield Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 12 slices (6 ounces) prosciutto, halved lengthwise
  • 1 pound (about 24) large shrimp
  • 24 nectarine or pineapple wedges
  • Garnish: sliced chives, sesame seeds

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.

  2. Wrap 1 piece prosciutto around each shrimp. Thread shrimp and nectarines alternately on 8 (8-inch) skewers. Place skewers in a shallow dish; drizzle with 1/2 cup soy sauce mixture, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350° to 400°). Remove skewers from marinade; discard marinade. Grill skewers 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are opaque. Serve with remaining soy sauce mixture. Garnish, if desired.
