Recipe Time

Prep: 20 Minutes
Chill: 30 Minutes
Grill: 6 Minutes


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


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.
