I tried this dish on my kids and they were not fans at all (and they also kept calling everything by the wrong name, too…clams instead of scallops, lettuce instead of arugula, and grits instead of polenta). So they definitely proved their point that this upscale meal should be left to the enjoyment of adults only, at least in our house. And I don’t know about you, but we certainly don’t mind a quiet evening alone every now and then! Plus this is not one of those fancy dishes that will have you in the kitchen cooking and cleaning all night long either, so get ready to enjoy.

I made your polenta for the first time tonight. I served it with salmon and broccoli. What have I been waiting for!? The polenta is creamy and so super easy. A hit! Thank you for all your recipes. I feel fancy ha!
Can u still make it without the procciuto? Would it come out juicey
You can and it should still be juicy though a little less so.
This was the best dish I have ever made. Awesome!!!
This looks so good. I can not wait to make it.
Tried this today and it was really good! I, unfortunately, did not have milk for the polenta so I substituted with water and a few tbsps of butter, then added salt to taste once it was done. Nothing like delicious scallops to remind you the summer is just about here!
One of the best meals I have ever made and we felt great after eating it!
How do I get the prosciutto to stay on the scallops? do I pin it with something or will it just stay?
Hi Melissa. The prosciutto is thin enough that is should just stick to the scallop. ~Amy
This recipe looks delicious! It looks perfect for an easy, but still elegant meal. And you can’t go wrong with prosciutto :)
Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it’s really informative.

You for sharing!
Made this tonight for the hubby after the kids were down and it was AMAZING…and not to mention SUPER easy to make. Thank you so much!
I have been dying to try this recipe since I saw this post. My husband and I made it together tonight, and it was SO good. Great recipe for a really nice dinner in.
Nothing says love like a home cooked meal. :)
Would a alternate milk work? Coconut or rice?
You could definitely try one of those alternatives, but I will mention that some even use broth or water to make their polenta…I just prefer it with milk.
