Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Makes: 8 servings
Total Time: 50min
What You’ll Need:
1 1/2 lbs of rinsed and dried scallops
1 lb of thinly sliced bacon with the strips cut in half crosswise
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
large lettuce leaves
What To Do:
First off you will need to preheat your oven broiler. Next you will spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Now wrap each of your scallops with a nice piece of the bacon and secure the wrap with a toothpick. Then place the scallops wrapped in bacon on your sprayed baking sheet and then season them with your salt and pepper. Then cook your scallops under your broiler for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Make sure the bacon is cooked through. I also suggest turning them once mid-way through. Lastly just serve them on a large platter with lettuce leaves (optional) and place your bacon-wrapped scallops on the platter.
*I tend to find it better when you use larger scallops. Simply because they will shrink a little bit as you are cooking them.
