Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/prosciutto_wrapped_scallops.html

Here we wrap plump and juicy scallops in a bit of mellow prosciutto for a more sophisticated take on bacon-wrapped scallops. Use a better-quality prosciutto for superior flavor—it may cost a bit more but you only need a small amount for this dish.

1 dozen scallops | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Pat scallops dry and sprinkle both sides with lemon pepper. Wrap 1 strip of prosciutto around each scallop. Thread the scallops onto toothpicks (or skewers), securing the prosciutto to the scallop, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Broil until just cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the scallops drizzled with the vinaigrette.
