Make sure you get the prosciutto sliced at the deli, as it will be thinner and more flavorful than the packaged kind. You'll need 12 metal or soaked wooden skewers (8 to 10 in.).

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare a grill for high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds). Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook garlic and ginger until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add jam, juices, and soy sauce and cook until simmering. Measure out 1/2 cup glaze and set remaining aside.

Step 2

Wrap a prosciutto strip around a shrimp and thread onto a skewer. Alternate threading shrimp and apricots, 2 pieces each per skewer.

Step 3

Cook shrimp skewers, turning as needed and brushing with reserved 1/2 cup glaze, until grill marks appear and shrimp is opaque, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions and serve with extra sauce on the side.

Step 4

Yummy shrimp with the ham and apricots, but kinda messy to prepare. Give yourself at least an hour to get all prepared, very short time to cook, but very, very yummy. I would make it for a special occaision but not an everyday meal. Get the largest shrimp you can get get because the small ones fall off the skewers and are hard to wrap the ham around.
