1 c
balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp
brown sugar
very thin slices prosciutto
large sea scallops
extra-virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

How to Make Scallops with Prosciutto


  • 1Combine the vinegar and brown sugar in a small, non-reactive
    saucepan and bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  • 2Reduce 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.
  • 3Allow to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, cut
    each piece of prosciutto in half lengthwise and wrap around
    the scallops, securing each with a toothpick.
  • 4Brush or spray with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • 5Grill 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.
