Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops with Balsamic

Scallops and bacon are a classic combination. The only thing that can top bacon in my book is prosciutto.  That’s exactly what I used to take this Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops recipe to the next level.  That, and truffle balsamic.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 5 minutes
    •    Cook time: 10 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 2


    •    8 sea scallops
    •    1 tbsp olive oil
    •    8 slices of prosciutto
    •    1 fresh lemon, halved
    •    Balsamic reduction, to finish
    •    Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Fold prosciutto slices in half lengthwise.  Wrap one piece around the outside of each scallop, overlapping prosciutto ends and securing with a toothpick.
  2. Heat pan to med-high and drizzle pan with the olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each scallop, squeeze lemon over them, and place in pan.  Cook 6-7 minutes, turning once, until just opaque.  They are done when the prosciutto is a light brown crisp and the scallops are slightly golden.
  4. Plate and drizzle with high-quality balsamic.
