What makes these scallops special is that they are coated in a tomato olive mix before being wrapped in prosciutto and baked.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup black olives
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 20 scallops
  • 10 slices prosciutto

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Place the tomatoes, olives, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until all of the ingredients are well blended and the consistency is almost smooth. Scrape the tomato and olive marinade into a large bowl; toss the scallops in the mixture until well coated.
  3. 3 Cut prosciutto slices in half lengthwise and wrap each piece around one scallop. Arrange wrapped scallops on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for twenty minutes.
