Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Maple Scallops

One of my favorite easy grilled seafood recipes is prosciutto-wrapped scallops.  In all honesty, it’s so easy it hardly qualifies as a recipe…  Just fold the proscuitto in half lengthwise, wrap it around a scallop, and slide the scallop on a skewer…  Repeat…  Drizzle with a mixture of 2/3 parts maple syrup, and 1/3 part olive oil, and grill.  I also brush the scallops with more of the maple/olive oil mixture several times, once the outside of the scallops are cooked.  This time we closed the lid on our Webber grill, and the scallops ended up having a nice smoky flavor that paired well with the salt in the prosciutto and the sweetness of the maple syrup.

On the side we had couscous and an easy cabbage and corn side dish.  To make the cabbage dish, finely chop half of a head of cabbage, and saute with about a tablespoon of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.  Add 1 can of (drained) corn in the last few minutes of cooking.
