Crispy pancetta stands up beautifully to grilled shrimp and makes for easy finger food when served on a skewer. There's no added salt in this recipe, because the shrimp and pancetta are naturally quite salty on their own. Serve with lime wedges.

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 pinch hot pepper flakes crushed
  • 16 raw jumbo shrimp (about 12 oz/340 g), thawed, peeled and deveined
  • 8 thin slices pancetta halved crosswise

Method

In bowl, combine garlic, orange zest, orange juice and hot pepper flakes; add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Wrap each shrimp with piece of pancetta; thread onto metal or soaked wooden skewer. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until pancetta is crisp and shrimp are pink, about 4 minutes.
