Grilled Caprese Skewers – Makes 8 Skewers

Just because cheese melts doesn’t mean it doesn’t belong on the grill. In this recipe, preparation is key to perfectly grilled mozzarella cheese. Wrapping mozzarella in prosciutto prevents a melty mess on the grill grates and adds an interesting smoky kick to traditional caprese flavors.

Grilled Caprese Skewers – Makes 8 Skewers

  • Author: Shanthi Appelo


These caprese skewers feature traditional flavors but take it to the next level on the grill. The mozzarella cheese is wrapped in prosciutto and taken for a quick ride in the freezer to firm up and prevent melting all over the grill.


  • 8 Campari tomatoes
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 16 fresh basil leaves
  • Small metal or wood skewers
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic reduction
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. If using wood skewers, soak at least 30 minutes before skewering ingredients on.
  2. Wrap mozzarella slices in 1 slice of prosciutto each. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up.
  3. Skewer one tomato with one prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella slice. Grill immediately over a hot grill prepared with spray oil. Grill for a few minutes until grill marks appear.
  4. Once skewers have cooled enough to handle, add basil leaves and serve. Drizzle some olive oil and balsamic reduction on top. Add coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
