From SoHo, a restaurant in Atlanta, these shrimp and scallops are wrapped in prosciutto, sauteed and then assembled atop melon slices with delicate sauce to make a "tower" or napoleon type entree. Very pretty presentation and wonderful flavor that doesn't overpower the seafood. From "Atlanta Cooks: 125 Recipes from Top Atlanta Chefs" by Melissa Libby. Comes together in a snap. Great for entertaining!
