Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops

Scallops are a great source of protein, magnesium, and potassium, all needed for muscle growth. This low carb tasty dish has healthy fats and is high in flavor (and can also be grilled!)

Serves 2-4

Cook and prep time: 20-25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package Prosciutto (look for a brand that only has pork and salt as in Citterio)
  • 1-2 lbs. scallops
  • sprinkle Italian seasoning
  • drizzle extra virgin olive oil
  • drizzle balsamic vinegar

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350° F and prepare baking sheet. Cut prosciutto in half lengthwise to create enough strips for each scallop.

2. Sprinkle scallops lightly with Italian seasoning. Wrap prosciutto slice around each scallop.

3. Place seasoned and wrapped scallops on a baking sheet, leaving space between each so they cook evenly.

4. Bake 15 minutes, turning scallops over after 10 minutes; bake 5 more minutes. Remove from oven.

5. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and serve.
