Scallops W/ Spinach Prosciutto Salad-Warm Balsamic Vinaigrette

“All my favorite foods combined in a lovely salad. This will go well with a nice crusty loaf of bread and a chilled bottle of white wine”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pick stems off the spinach leves. Lay scallops on a kitchen towel and pat dry. Cut prosciutto in thin strips. Cut shallot into thin rings. Mince garlic. Put spinach and prosciutto in a large bowl.
  2. Heat 2 T olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat, place scallops in hot pan but do not crowd pan. (do in two batches if necesssary) Sear and allow to caramelize for about 2 minutes. Flip scallops and sear on the other side.
  3. Remove from pan and set aside, keep warm. Keep pan on the heat and add another 1 tsp of olive oil if necessary, Add garlic, cook for 5 minutes, deglaze with chicken stock, add balsamic vinegar, honey and shallot. Allow to reduce by half.
