Description

These little broiled scallop bacon bundle appetizers are quick to put together, delicious and make a great impression on your guests. They are a simple, yet elegant appetizer. These scallops are also great as a main course. I like to eat a few of them along with vegetables and a salad – a nice light, great tasting and healthy dinner.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 slices of prosciutto, try to find super thin slices (about .5 oz each)
  • 6 large sea scallops, if frozen, thaw overnight in refrigerator, rinse and pat dry
  • 1/2 T. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/21 jalapeno, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 T. homemade chipotle seasoning (or use store bought seasoning)
  • 2 T. crumbled bacon
  • olive oil spray
  • green onions, trimmed and cut into long strips
  • cilantro (garnish)

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring enough water (to cover green onions) to boil.
  2. Add green onion tops to boiling water and boil for about 1 minute.
  3. Drain and place onions in ice water. Drain again and pat dry.
  4. In a small bowl or custard cup, combine melted butter and garlic.
  5. Place a slice of prosciutto down on a cutting board. Place a scallop on top. 
  6. Brush with the melted garlic butter. Sprinkle homemade chipotle seasoning on top.
  7. Bring up ends of prosciutto together. Twist prosciutto at the top, try to tuck everything in and tie top with a piece of green onion.
  8. Broil for 6-8 minutes until scallop temperature reaches 115°. Final temperature ends up being around 125°. Top with cilantro for garnish.
  9. To bake these instead, preheat oven to 350°. Bake for about 15 minutes until temperature reaches about 115°. Serve immediately.
