BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 24 scallops
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 12 slices of bacon, cut in half lengthwise
  • 24 medium-sized scallops
  • 10 Tbsp butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, pressed
  • Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Toothpicks

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. If you want to make clean up easier, line the baking dish with foil (shiny side down) and grease the foil.
  • Cut the bacon slices in half lengthwise so you have 24 pieces.
  • Pre-fry the bacon just until it gets some color and it's still limp and soft (it needs to be flexible enought to wrap around the scallops).
  • Melt the butter in a small bowl.
  • Add garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (if using) and stir well.
  • Set half of this butter / garlic mixture aside for later.
  • Dip each scallop in melted butter / garlic sauce.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon around each scallop; secure with toothpick (all the way through the scallop).
  • Arrange the wrapped scallops on the greased baking dish.
  • Bake on the middle rack for around 15 minutes (or until the scallops are done and the bacon is crisp).
  • Place scallops in large bowl and pour remaining butter / garlic sauce from earlier over the scallops and toss gently to coat.
