Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops


  • 6-10 ea. Scallops
  • 2 ea. Sheets of prosciutto
  • Transglutaminase for dusting


  1. Align the prosciutto sheets side by side with one lightly overlapping the other. Dust with transglutaminase.
  2. Place cleaned, dry scallops on their side in a single file line and wrap the scallops into a cylinder. Best to do on top of cater wrap using the ends as handles rolling and tightening. Set aside and refrigerate.
  3. When ready to cook, sear in a cast iron pan and baste with butter. Should be done in about 2-3 minutes.

Cassoulet Sauce


  • 1 cup Frozen Pure and Simple Steamed Yuca
  • 1 qt. Tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Capers
  • ½ cup Olives
  • 1 cup White beans cooked
  • 1 cup Shaved fennel
  • Bacon Lardons
  • ½ cup Tomatoes


  1. Render bacon and remove fat (or don’t) and throw in frozen yuca. When they start to brown at 3-4 minutes, add all ingredients except tomato sauce and a few fennel shavings for garnish.
  2. Deglaze with white wine of choice. Cook 2-3 minutes and add tomato sauce.
  3. Bring to boil then remove from heat. Season to taste.
