Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops

At Costco yesterday John found some wild caught sea scallops at a pretty darn good price and I found some decent prosciutto; and a delicious partnership was born.  Here’s how we prepared the scallops with a twist on the basic pork wrapped gems from the sea.

Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops

Scallops

Prosciutto (look for a brand that only has pork & salt like Citterio)

Italian Seasoning

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with foil.

2. Cut the prosciutto in half lengthwise so you have enough strips of prosciutto for each scallop.

3. Take each scallop and sprinkle lightly with the Italian seasoning and wrap a piece of prosciutto around the outside of the scallop like this:

4. Place each seasoned and wrapped scallop on the foil lined baking sheet, making sure to leave space in between the scallops so that they cook evenly.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, turning the scallops over when there is 5 minutes left in the cooking time.

6. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and serve.

Enjoy!!

    Those look amazing! I love it when I see a paleo recipe that’s familiar to people. It definitely makes the diet more approachable. Who wouldn’t be willing to try a paleo diet if they were told they could have prosciutto-wrapped scallops?! :) Thanks for the great recipe!

    I’m curious what Paleo food items you regularly pick up from Costco besides household items? Is there a good selection of Organic veggies and fruits? Grass-Fed Beef? Consider me ignorant.

    You inspired me. I went to the store to get scallops and they were out of the big ones so I used the small ones and used jalapeno bacon instead of prosciutto with the Italian seasoning, evoo and balsamic. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi, I thought that all cured/non-fresh meats were not allowed in paleo? Is prosciutto the only type that’s suitable in moderation? How about bacon? Thanks!

      There are several cured meats that are not filled with sugars, preservatives, or chemicals that can be enjoyed while eating paleo, but like with anything else, probably should not be eaten as your main source of protein but now and then as a compliment to a meal or some good high quality bacon, or some lunch meat for example from Applegate Farms works for our family.

    I’m new as of yesterday. Does coconut oil tastes like coconut? I see it is in many recipes but the hubby does not care for the flavor. Can I buy it off the shelf or do I have to order the tropical traditions? Thank you.

      Hi Christina! Coconut oil typically does not have a super strong coconut flavor, especially when you cook it with savory foods. I personally do not ever notice a coconut flavor but it lends a yummy, delicate, flavor and smell when you cook with it. You do not have to buy it from Tropical Traditions but if you do buy it off the shelf, try to buy virgin coconut oil or un-refined. I recommend Tropical Traditions because I respect how they make their coconut oil and it’s honestly the best I have ever tasted.

    Sarah…this was great…thank you! I’m not a huge fan of scallops but my husband is and these hit the spot for both of us! This coming from a New England girl! My son and his GF have done the Paleo diet for a few years and we love sharing the recipes. Your website is the best!
