Pastrami wrapped scallops with basil

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 larges Sea scallops
12 Paper-thin slices lean pastrami or prosciutto, 3-4 inches wide
2 tablespoons Fresh basil, coarsely chopped (up to 3)
3 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Olive oil

If you like scallops, here's one that's delish and is a variation on the bacon theme. It's from our recently published cookbook - The San Antonio Herb Society Cookbook.

(Fran Rich, adapted from Fish in a Flash) Delicious and elegant, this dish is also incredibly easy. Use large shrimp if you prefer, and use only fresh basil.

Place a scallop on the end of each piece of pastrami; sprinkle scallop generously with basil. Carefully roll pastrami around scallop to make a bundle. Thread on skewers. Mix vinegar and oil. Grill bundles over medium-hot heat, basting frequently with oil and vinegar mixture, 4-5 minutes per side. Serve hot. Serves 2.
