Shrimp & Prosciutto with Smoky Honey-Mustard Sauce

Shrimp & Prosciutto with Smoky Honey-Mustard Sauce

Holidays and parties call for easy, great-tasting appetizers without a lot of fuss.

Shrimp & Prosciutto with Smoky Honey Mustard Sauce is savory, tangy-sweet finger food you’ll love having on your party menu. Prosciutto di Parma has been a longtime charcuterie favorite and elevates other proteins like chicken, veal, or shrimp in simple recipes like this one.

If you’re looking for adventure try Spanish Serrano or Ibérico ham in place of the prosciutto. They are are every bit as delicious, but can be a little more difficult to find in local grocery stores.

The Smoky Honey Mustard Sauce as a launching pad for great dipping sauce.

Find your perfect balance of savory-sweet-tang to make it your own. Once it’s well mixed, add mustard for more tang; mayo to mellow it out; honey for more sweet; or liquid smoke for more smoky flavor. If you like spice, mix in a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for kicks. Just avoid adding salt as the prosciutto will bring the salty-savory balance to the sweet and tangy sauce.

Take the stress out of last minute party prep—wrap the shrimp and mix the sauce up to 24 hours in advance and then pop in the oven or skillet right before serving. Shrimp & Prosciutto with Smoky Honey Mustard Sauce hits the go-to appetizer mark and if you choose brands carefully, it will be a hit with your gluten-free friends too. Enjoy!
