      If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Mix the scallops with the oil and lemon juice, and season with sea salt and black pepper.

      Wrap each scallop half in a piece of prosciutto, then thread onto metal or wooden skewers. Carefully put two scallop halves on each skewer, or fewer depending on their size.

      Lay the skewers on a baking sheet, and roast in the oven for 5-8 minutes, until the prosciutto starts to crisp. Serve hot with an arugula garnish.


    If serving non-meat eaters, omit the prosciutto and cook the scallops for a few minutes less.
