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


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.
