Grilled Shrimp Wrapped in Jamón Serrano Recipe

Receta de Gambas a la Parilla Envueltas en Jamón Serrano

25 minutes

4 servings

This appetizer is very straightforward, but as with most grilling recipes, simpler is usually better. The key is to cook the shrimp quickly at high heat, which will crisp the ham without overcooking the shrimp.

How To Cook


Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Mix salt, pepper, pimentón de La Vera and olive oil, add the shrimp and toss to coat.  


Wrap each shrimp with a piece of jamón about two inches long, and skewer the shrimp so the ham is held securely around the shrimp. Place the skewers over a high temperature grill and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are opaque and the jamón is crispy at the edges. Serve immediately.
