Grilled Shrimp with Sopressata, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil

1/2 lb fresh DLM Handmade Mozzarella
3 Tbsp Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Aunt Angie’s Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
16 medium-size (16/20 count) raw shrimp
1/2 lb sopressata (pepperoni or salami can be used)
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped

Slice the mozzarella thinly and arrange it in a single layer on a platter. Sprinkle it with the olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.

Peel and devein the shrimp, but leave their tails on. Cut the sopressata into 8 pieces, then cut each of these pieces in half. Thread the shrimp and sopressata on skewers alternately.

Season the skewers with salt and pepper to taste and grill over a medium-hot fire for 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Remove the shrimp and sopressata from the skewers and arrange them on top of the mozzarella. Sprinkle the chopped basil over the whole platter and serve with crusty bread.
