  • ⅓ cup DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, about 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cream
  • pinch of sugar
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 large raw shrimp, U-15, shells removed
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce, split in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 2 ounces goat cheese


  • Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat for about 10 minutes.
  • In a blender or food processor mix ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, dijon mustard, cream and a pinch of sugar and process until smooth. Season kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Wrap each shrimp with a slice of prosciutto. Thread 3 wrapped shrimp on metal skewers or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for about 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
  • Drizzle shrimp with one tablespoon of olive oil and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Drizzle the additional tablespoon of olive oil on the heads of romaine lettuce and season with more kosher salt and pepper.
  • Grill the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side or just until opaque. Grill the heads of romaine lettuce cut side down for about 3-4 minutes on one side or until grill marks appear.
  • Plate the heads of lettuce on a platter cut side up. Sprinkle with cranberries, walnuts and goat cheese. Drizzle the balsamic dressing and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
