Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops

prosciutto wrapped scallops

Mmmm, prosciutto wrapped scallops are my new favorite summer dinner. I served these bad boys over some arugula with shaved parm and a light, lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing. This dish was, in one word, superb.

Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops + Lemon Parmesan Arugula Salad

Serves 2


  • .75 lbs fresh scallops
  • Prosciutto
  • Arugula
  • 1 lemon
  • Shaved parmesan cheese
  • Salt + pepper


  1. Heat the grill on medium high and pat the scallops dry.
  2. Pull strips of prosciutto in two and wrap them around each scallop, flat sides down.
  3. Take grilling skewers and pierce a few scallops onto each, leaving a bit of room between them.
  4. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until scallops are opaque/white through.
  5. While the scallops are grilling plate a large handful of arugula on two separate plates. Top with shaved parmesan cheese and dress with olive oil, juice of ½ lemon on each, and sat and pepper. Toss to combine.
  6. Once the scallops are cooked through, remove from skewers, place on top of salad and enjoy!
