This recipe is a great idea. I did not have pancetta so I used bacon. It was delicious. Will definitley make again. Thumbs up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Halve the pancetta slices to make two thin strips of pancetta. Wrap each scallop tightly with the strips of pancetta, forming a criss-cross pattern across the scallop (like a present). Heat olive oil and pan-fry scallops briefly on each side until the scallop is cooked through (when they lose their transparency and turn opaque: approximately two minutes on each side).
  2. Blanch the asparagus in rapidly boiling water for two minutes.
  3. Mix the wine and cheese and reduce in a small saucepan until thick. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Assemble the dish by placing 3 asparagus together, place 3 scallops on top and drizzle with 1/2 the gorgonzola sauce per person.
