Prosciutto-wrapped scallops

I love scallops. And I love prosciutto. So, picture this: prosciutto-wrapped scallops. It just can’t get any better than this! It’s a good idea as a side dish for a main course of fish, or to give an extra touch of sophistication to any salad (and an effortless way to impress your friends)!

Just wrap the scallops with prosciutto. Half a slice of prosciutto will do. Since the scallops have a bit of a sticky texture when raw you don’t need anything to keep the prosciutto around each scallop. Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush each side of the scallops with olive oil and then season with salt (not too much because the prosciutto gets saltier when heated). Bake for about 15 minutes or until the scallops get golden.
