Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops

The most perfect appetizer for all seasons! Easy, quick, and always a crowd pleaser. Another round of applause for Isabelle reminding us of our favorite appetizers, that don’t require going out to dinner to enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 12 medium – small Scallops
  • 6 Thinly sliced Prosciutto
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil

Directions:

  1. Pat dry all sides of each scallop with a paper towel and place in a bag with 2 strands of rosemary and enough olive oil to coat everything. Let sit for 5 minutes
  2. Remove 1 slice of prosciutto from the package and fold it in half across the horizontal axis – leave the fattier side down
  3. Take 2 scallops from the bag and place them onto one end of the prosciutto and roll tightly to the other end. The prosciutto will stick to itself , which will prevent it from unraveling
  4. Sprinkle scallops with pepper and a pinch of salt. Heat up your frying pan to medium high heat
  5. Place the scallop wrap with the fatty side of the prosciutto down onto the grill and press gently
  6. Let sear on medium high heat for 1 minute, then flip each wrap to  sear on each side for another 30 seconds – 1 minute
  7. Remove loose rosemary leafs on the scallops and place onto a plate for serving
