Sage-Stuffed, Pancetta-Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp with Baby Panzanella Salad

Serves 2 servings

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • 6 jumbo shrimp, peeled, de-veined and partially butterflied, tails left on
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided plus extra for drizzling
  • 12 sage leaves
  • 6 slices pancetta, unraveled
  • For the salad:
  • 1 bag croutons, Caesar- or Italian-flavored
  • 1 carton multi-colored cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 roasted red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
PREPARATION

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons EVOO.

Open up the butterflied shrimp and season them with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a drizzle of EVOO. Place two sage leaves into the slice along the back where the shrimp has been de-veined and butterflied, then wrap each shrimp from head to tail with a slice of pancetta.

Transfer the pancetta-wrapped shrimp to the hot skillet and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.

While the shrimp are cooking, make the panzanella salad: Combine the croutons, tomatoes, shallot, red pepper and basil in a large bowl. Toss the ingredients together with the red wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons EVOO, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Divide the salad between two plates and top each with three shrimp a plate for you and a plate for your honey.
