Gayle's Pesto Scallops

Print Friendly and PDF
If you love scallops, you will enjoy this recipe.  This super easy recipe comes from Cliff and Patti's friend Gayle Miyake of Seattle.  Most of the ingredients can be purchased at Trader Joe's.  In the picture above, I drizzled fig balsamic vinegar syrup as a topping after the scallops were cooked.   Pictured here are Stephen, Patti and Cliff on TV at the Cal v. Huskies game in November.

Ingredients:
1 bag of frozen Trader Joe scallops (large size)
1 package of Trader Joe prosciutto
1 jar of Trader Joe pesto
Balsamic syrup, optional
Toothpicks

Thaw the scallops.  Cut the prosciutto strips in half lengthwise.  Wrap each scallop with a half length of prosciutto, and use a toothpick to secure it so it does not unravel.  Place a dollop of pesto on top of each scallop.  Bake 350 degrees for 15-20 min.  Check for doneness (do not overbake).  Drizzle balsamic syrup over all when served (optional).  Serve warm.
