Provided by: Robyn Doyon-Aitken
Yields: 4 servings
Cuisine: Italian
Number of ingredients: 6
  • 6 thin slices prosciutto di San Daniele
  • 12 large sea scallops,
  • 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 12 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed pink peppercorns
How to cook:
  1. Cut the prosciutto slices in half lengthwise to make 12 long strips. Season the scallops evenly with the salt. Place 1 basil leaf at the end of a strip of prosciutto, folding it in half lengthwise, if necessary. Place a scallop on its side on top of the basil and carefully roll the scallop inside the basil and prosciutto. Secure with a toothpick or skewer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  2. Drizzle the scallops with the olive oil. Place the scallops on the heated grill pan, pressing down gently to make sure the scallops make direct contact with the hot surface. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until nice grill marks form and the scallops are just warm in the center (see Cook’s Note below). Remove the scallops to a plate and sprinkle with the pink peppercorns.
