Step 1

Peel and devein shrimp, with tails on. Rinse and pat them dry. Place the shrimp in a dish and dress with the zest of 1 lemon, salt, pepper, garlic, and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Place a sage leaf in the cavity of the back of each shrimp where it has been deveined. Wrap the shrimp with the prosciutto in a tight, slightly overlapping layer covering the shrimp but not the tail.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, and arrange the shrimp in the pan, well nested and in a single layer. Cook for about 3 minutes, then turn and cook for about 3 minutes more. The shrimp should be firm and the prosciutto crisp. Remove the shrimp to a platter. Add the wine and lemon juice to the pan,, and swirl in the butter to melt. Spoon the sauce over the shrimp and serve.
