Shrimp Wrapped in Proscutto for a Romantic Dinner

It’s a challenge coming up with a low calorie meal on regular days but for a romantic dinner? That’s a challenge. It’s simply a matter of high-quality ingredients and portion control. Think tapas and atmosphere! The richness of the cake  is in the company, the dinner is the frosting.

Shrimp Wrapped in Proscutto

  • proscutto
  • shrimp
  • chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • whole basil

Using a strainer dip shrimp into boiling water until color changes, do not over-cook. Arrange 3 medium shrimp on a slice of proscutto and add a small dollop of the sun-dried tomatoes. Top with a whole piece of basil and wrap into a roll.

Mixed Leaf Artisan Lettuce Salad

  • Mixed leaf lettuces
  • Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • Thin sliced radishes
  • A Rasberry Vinegarette

The key is quality, perfectly fresh, crisp lettuce, big crisp brightly colored radishes and ripe tomatoes. Arrange artfully on plate.


Pour a small glass and garnish with a perfect in-season ripe strawberry cut in half.


In a martini glass add a scoop of vanilla greek yogurt, top with slices of ripe fruit and sprinkle with cinnamon.
