GRILLED SHRIMP WITH BASIL AND PROSCIUTTO
1½ pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 bunch fresh basil leaves
6 ounces very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut lengthwise into 1-inch strips
1–2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup Pernod or another anise-flavored aperitif • Lemon wedges
Fresh ground black pepper
Toothpicks or small bamboo skewers
Season the shrimp on both sides with salt and pepper. Wrap a basil leaf around each shrimp, then wrap it in a strip of prosciutto. Secure with toothpicks. Drizzle olive oil over the shrimp wrap to coat lightly on both sides or brush with a pastry brush.
Arrange the shrimp on the grate and grill until the prosciutto is sizzling and crisp, and shrimp is cooked through, 1–2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.
Add Pernod in a small pan and place on grill, and warm to body temp. Remove the pan and touch a match to the Pernod to ignite it. Pour it over the shrimp and serve at once, with lemon wedges. 4 Servings.
