Scallop and Prosciutto Bites

Scallop and Prosciutto Bites


"A different version of the commonly seen appetizer of scallops wrapped in bacon. Using prosciutto allows for the subtle flavors of this meat to come through without overpowering the wonderful flavor of the scallops. Additionally, the fat content and grease is significantly less than bacon for those that are health conscious. I serve this for guests as an appetizer and people love it. It can be made into a main course dish by increase the portion for each person."

  1. Wrap each scallop with a thin slice of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the scallops into the pan, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Season each side with pepper as it is cooking. Once each side has been fried, sprinkle the white wine over the scallops, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the scallops from the pan to drain on paper towels. When slightly cooled, transfer to a serving tray, and remove the toothpicks to serve.

These were fantastic, but I modified the recipe a bit. I used the frozen scallops from Costco. I defrosted them, and then let them drain on paper towels. Based on other reviews, I made sure t...

Very good. Note: Proscuitto is very strong and must be paper thin to avoid overpowering a delicate flavor like scallops. My Italian MIL's idea of paper-thin was "you should be able to read the p...

We thought this needed a little garlic so when I make again I will infuse the olive oil with garlic.

This was great. It had the flavor I have been looking for, but haven't found when using bacon. I served it with steamed broccoli and bernaise sauce. The sauce was good with the scallops as we...

I normally make this with bacon, but had some prosciutto and thought "what the heck". It turned out really well. The prosciutto didn't crisp up as much as our bacon does, but was still good. ...
