  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 paper-thin slices of Prosciutto
  • 16 sea scallops
  • Essence
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Melon Relish


  • Soak 16 toothpicks in water and preheat the grill to medium-high.

  • Tear the prosciutto slices in half lengthwise. Wrap each piece of prosciutto around a scallop, securing with a toothpick.  Season with Essence and drizzle with olive oil.
