Zesty scallop and prosciutto skewers
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep time: under 15 minutes
  • Cook time: under 10 minutes
  • Ready in: Less than 30 Minutes
  • Difficulty Rating: 1
  • Syns per serving:


For the dressing

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 100ml fat free French dressing
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • A small handful of finely chopped fresh basil

For the scallops

  • 4 large slices of prosciutto or Parma ham
  • 12 fresh scallops, cleaned
  • Salad, to serve


  1. Soak four wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes (this prevents them burning).
  2. To make the dressing, place the garlic, fat free dressing, the lemon
    zest and juice, chopped rosemary, red chilli and chopped basil in a
    blender or food processor and pulse until just smooth. Transfer to a
    small bowl and set aside.
  3. Preheat a ridged griddle to high.
  4. Cut each slice of ham lengthways into three pieces and wrap each
    piece around a scallop. Thread each skewer with three of the
    wrapped scallops.
  5. Place the skewers on the griddle (or under a medium-hot grill) and cook
    for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly charred and cooked through.
  6. Transfer to individual serving plates, drizzle the dressing over and
    serve with a side salad of your choice.
