Shrimp Saltimbocca

This shrimp saltimbocca along with the buttery lemony pan sauce would be perfect tossed with pasta for a meal but I decided t go a different route and served it as appetizers along with the pan sauce for dipping. 

Shrimp Saltimbocca

The shrimp version takes a bit more time to make since you have to wrap all of the shrimp up with small sage leaves but other than that it is super easy! Once the shrimp has been cooked the bottom of the pan is covered in those little brown bits of flavour which you just cannot let go to waste so I made a quick pan sauce with some browned butter, wine and lemon juice along with the crumbled bits of some crispy fried sage.

This is some of the tastiest shrimp that I have had in a while!

I tossed some additional lemon slices in with the pan sauce as it simmered down for presentation.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound shrimp, shelled and deviened
  • * small sage leaves
  • 3.5 ounces prosciutto, cut into 4-6 X 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 sage leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice (~1/2 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
