Place all the shrimp on a baking sheet and put under the broiler for two minutes and then flip and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side.  You may want to lay foil over the exposed wooden skewers to keep them from burning.  The water soaked skewers should be fine but if you see them burning, just top with the foil.

Shrimp and Prosciutto Mango appetizer

If you don’t have the tall shot glasses or a squeeze bottle, simply spoon some sauce on a plate and lay the shrimp skewers on top.  Serve on a large platter so people can help themselves.

  • 12 Jumbo Shrimp, peeled, deveined and tail removed
  • 12 Thin slices of prosciutto
  • 12 Tbsp. Mango Vinegar Sauce


  • Soak your 7-10 inch wooden skewers for a couple of hours so they don’t burn under the broiler. (or see my tip below if you forget) Squeeze about a tablespoon of the mango sauce into the bottom of each of 12 shot glasses.
  • Skewer your shrimp through the top of the shrimp and again near the bottom.  Straighten out the shrimp so they are almost straight like the skewer.  Where the tail was should be at the top of the skewer.
  • Wrap each skewered shrimp in one piece of prosciutto.  Place on a backing sheet and put under the broiler for about 2 minutes.  Flip and do the other side for about 2 minutes until the prosciutto is crispy and the shrimp are cooked through.
  • Place one shrimp skewer in each shot glass with the mango at the bottom and present on a platter.  Serve and take a bow!
