This recipe is versatile and is only limited by your imagination. Have fun trying different combinations like bacon and buffalo sauce with a blue cheese drizzle or try it with a smoked cheese nestled in with the shrimp.

1/3 stick melted butter
2 garlic loves, minced
18 pieces of thin, quality prosciutto
1 sheet puff pastry

Garlic Lemon Aioli
In the blending container of an immersion blender, combine the garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and egg yolks. Place the immersion blender in the bowl and process in short pulses until smooth. With the motor running, add the oil in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth and blended. Should be slightly thinner in order to use it as a drizzle (versus a dip)
Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the aioli to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
