Grilled Shrimp & Scallops Wrapped in Prosciutto

I saw jumbo shrimp and sea scallops at Costco this morning. The fish that Lorraine asked me to buy didn’t get bought.

I spotted prosciutto … and that told me what I was making!

Grilled Shrimp & Scallops Wrapped in Prosciutto

  • 1 lb large shrimp
  • 1/2 lb sea scallops
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp white wine
  • 1 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • minced garlic
  • proscuitto

Marinade: Mix the marinade ingredients well in a gallon ziplock back. Add the seafood and manipulate to coat with marinade. Seal the bag and marinate for 1 hour.

Remove the shrimp and scallops from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Wrap each piece of seafood with a strip of prosciutto — depending on sizes, this may wrap 3 or 4 times. Thread onto skewers.

Pre-heat grill. Over low coals/heat, grill the seafood for 10 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove from skewers and serve.

Note: Lorraine noted that the grills prosciutto is far tastier than any other way of cooking it. This came out great and will be repeated!
