  • Meanwhile, thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact. Rinse shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Thread shrimp lengthwise onto skewers, starting at the tail ends and keeping the shrimp straight on the skewers. In a shallow dish, combine honey and ginger. In another shallow dish, combine coconut and peanuts. Brush honey mixture on all sides of the shrimp, then roll shrimp in coconut mixture to coat. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each shrimp.

(Or preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange shrimp skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.)

okay, I want to know how this made it to the "Best things to take to a Pot Luck" article.  First, it only uses 12 oz of shrimp, so it isn't gonna feed many people, and the first few people in line will take the whole thing.
