3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons bourbon
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
24 jumbo shrimp (about 1 1/2 pounds)
6 very thin slices prosciutto or ham (about 3 1/2 ounces)
Cooking spray


Preheat broiler.

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a whisk. Peel the shrimp, leaving tails intact. Add the shrimp to maple mixture, tossing to coat. Remove shrimp from bowl, and discard the marinade. Cut each prosciutto slice lengthwise into 4 strips. Wrap 1 prosciutto strip around each shrimp. Thread shrimp onto 4 (8-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil for 3 minutes on each side or until done. Serve shrimp over Lemon Couscous.
