Scallops with Prosciutto has to be one of my favourite finger foods. The simplicity in their making contradicts the amazing flavours that the recipe produces. This is so easy to cook on a bbq or under the grill. The balsamic glaze is so full of flavour and is made separately. The scallops are fast to cook and only take a few minutes each side. Wrapping the prosciutto around each of the scallops creates a dish of small surf and turf. They are ideal as a starter, side dish or canapes. All in all a superb dish that is easy to cook and full of amazing flavours. If you are trying to make an impression then this is one of those dishes you need to try.

Scallops with Prosciutto

One of the main surf and turf recipes. The prosciutto helps the scallops to cook whilst adding additional flavour.

  • Combine the vinegar and brown sugar in a small, non-reactive saucepan and bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the mixture has reduced to about 1/4 cup (60 ml)-it should coat the bottom of the pan when you tilt it.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, cut each piece of prosciutto in half lengthwise and wrap around the scallops, securing each with a toothpick.
  • Brush or spray with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill over hot coals or under a preheated broiler just until the scallops are firm and opaque in the center, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to serving plates and drizzle with the balsamic glaze.
