Deberah's Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops with Maple-Butter-Ginger Glaze
|Source:||Lesley and Deberah Sutter|
|Number of Servings:||Serves 8|
|Ingredients:||16 fresh sea scallops
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
4 ounces prosciutto, very thinly sliced, divided into 16 portions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
|Directions:||Set a large sauté pan over high heat until hot. Add the scallops and sear on both sides until cooked to taste, about 1 minute for medium-rare. Remove to a plate.
Using the same sauté pan, melt the butter and add maple syrup and ginger. Simmer until reduced by half. Meanwhile, wrap each scallop in a portion of the prosciutto; hold closed with a skewer.
When the glaze is reduced, dip each prosciutto-wrapped scallop in the glaze and then sprinkle with some of the mint.
