Directions

  1. Season 16 scallops on both sides with salt and pepper (save the rest for another use). Heat 1 tsp (5 mL) oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add 8 scallops and sear without moving or touching them for about 2 min. or until a golden crust forms. Flip scallops and sear about 2 min. more. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Add 1 tsp (5 mL) more oil, as needed, and sear second batch of scallops. Remove to a plate.

  2. In the same hot pan, briefly sear salami slices, just until hot and slightly crisp; add artichoke pieces to warm.

  3. Assemble by threading a scallop, a folded salami slice and a piece of artichoke onto cocktail picks and serve warm.
