"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends." — by Phoena

Using prosciutto allows for the subtle flavors of this meat to come through without overpowering the wonderful flavor of the scallops. I serve this for guests as an appetizer and people love it.
