Scallop radicchio cups

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
8.00 large radicchio leaves
2.00 tablespoon oil
1 \N salt; to taste
1 \N freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
8.00 large sea scallops
½ cup bread crumbs; seasoned with
1.00 teaspoon bayou blast; see * note
¾ cup chopped pancetta
½ tablespoon chopped lemon zest
2.00 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
½ cup olive oil
1 \N chopped parsley; for garnish

* Note: See the "Bayou Blast - {Emeril's Creole Seasoning}" recipe which is included in this collection.

Preheat grill. Brush radicchio leaves with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill leaves 2 minutes per side, until softened and lightly browned. Set aside to cool. Preheat broiler.

Season scallops with salt and pepper. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan, preferably non-stick, over very high heat and briefly sear scallops on both sides. Wrap scallops in grilled leaves, place seam-side down in a shallow baking dish, and top with seasoned bread crumbs; broil just until bread crumbs brown. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat pancetta until brown and crispy; stir in zest, vinegar and olive oil and heat until warmed through; season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, top 2 radicchio cups per serving with warm vinaigrette and garnish with parsley. This recipe yields 4 servings.
