“Fresh shrimp are butterflied then stuffed with cheese and roasted red pepper before wrapping in proscuitto. A panko breading finishes these off before they get fried into crunchy goodness.” - by Nicholas
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Lay out the shrimp on a clean surface so the two halves are spread open like a book. Place a strip of mozzarella cheese in the center, then a strip of roasted pepper. Close the shrimp and wrap each one with a slice of prosciutto.
- Place the flour in a small dish. In a separate dish, whisk together the egg, water and salt with a fork. Place the panko crumbs in a third dish. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat or until it reaches 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Dip the wrapped shrimp in flour to coat, then dip in the egg mixture. Roll in the panko crumbs until evenly coated.
- Fry the shrimp in the hot oil until golden brown and cheese is melting, about 1 minute per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels before serving.

I made 2 minor changes - I used roasted green ..." See morepeppers instead of red peppers - though I did use a sweet variety. I also used a hard turkey ham instead of prosciutto. I use the turkey ham all the time, so I don't think that was the reason either. Sorry Nicholas - I wanted to love them!"
"I really wanted to like this ! It sounded like a very exciting recipe. I made a few just to try them and found them a bit bland and salty.
