Bev was in Gatlinburg at our time share with her sister on Valentine’s Day and when she came home the next night we had a meal of sautéed scallops, prosciutto wrapped filet mignon, and Spinach Maria (from the freezer).
The nice sea scallops were given a light coating of oil then Emeril’s Essence and grilled while being basted with melted butter. The steaks got a coating of oil and Montreal Steak Seasoning and were wrapped in Benton’s prosciutto which I’d soaked a little to remove some of the salt and soften it a bit.
The scallops came out just right and I nailed the steak cooking (Thermapen wins again) but will stick with bacon when wrapping in the future. We all preferred the bacon flavor (no brainer for me as it’s my favorite meat on the planet) and the prosciutto was too dry to be wrapped without breaking – but it was worth a try. We washed it all down with a bottle of good red wine and called it a successful valentine’s date.
