Now this is my kind of recipe! You can make it in half an hour but you talk about it for a week! Heck I have been wanting to make these again since I ate the first one! That is how good they are! I did not so much have the idea as shop-hazardly stumbled upon it. We were at the Grocery store picking up some King Salmon and they happen to have these beautiful huge prawns for sale. I told them to give me 12 of them and I would figure out something to do with them. I had wanted to make some prosciutto wrapped prawns last summer but never got around to it, so I figured I would pick up some prosciutto while were were there. They had all kinds of delicious looking prosciutto so I bought the one that Zo thought looked tastiest. I tossed together a rub at the last minute instead of going with only salting and peppering them and magic in our mouths was born! This has to be in my top five favorite recipes of the year! ENJOY, I know you are going to!

6 slices Picante Prosciutto (sliced in half long ways)
12 Prawns
2 wooden skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes)

1/4 cup 2 tsp whole grain Dijon mustard
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Picante Prosciutto (diced)
1/4 cup red onion (diced)
6 garlic cloves (minced)
1/4 cup fresh basil (chopped)
2 tbsp white truffle oil
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl and chill until ready to use.

Rub 1/2 of rub onto the prawns coating well, cover and let sit in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Remove prawns from refrigerator and wrap each one with half of a slice of prosciutto, rub the remaining 1/2 of rub on to the prosciutto wrapped prawns and thread onto the wooden skewers.
Heat grill to medium high heat.

Lay skewers on the bottom rack and grill for 3-4 minutes, flip and continue to grill 3-4 minutes or until the prawns center has turned opaque. Remove from grill and let cool for 1-2 minutes before serving! Enjoy!
