I LOVE SCALLOPS! They are my favorite seafood and if they are on the menu that’s what I’m ordering. And who doesn’t love bacon? This is a classic combination that never gets old.
Scallops provide healthy doses of vitamin B12, Omega-3 fatty acids, and magnesium.
Here’s how we prepare it.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops
- 10 sea scallops
- 5 strips of nitrate free bacon, cut in half to make 10 pieces (If you cannot get bacon from a local farm, we recommend Applegate Farms Sunday Bacon.)
- Sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
What to do:
Preheat the broiler to high.
Wrap each scallop with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place the bacon wrapped scallops on a baking sheet. Season with sea salt and pepper. Watch the salt – the bacon will add a salty flavor to the dish so go lightly.
Place the baking sheet under the broiler for 10-15 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the scallops are cooked through.
Serve immediately as they taste best when hot and crispy.
Yield 2 meal servings or 5 appetizer servings.
