Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

27. December 2006 Pork, Shellfish 0

I’m not sick of bacon just yet. The third yield from my first shipment of bacon became dinner. This would be awesome with some mashed potatoes on the side.

6 pieces of large scallops
6 slices of bacon

1. Season scallops with salt, pepper and paprika. Wrap each scallop with a piece of bacon.
2. Using a skillet, sear each bacon-wrapped scallop until bacon is crisp and golden brown. Sear the side where the bacon ends first. Using tongs, gently turn them and cook the other sides. To make sure the bacon stays closed, sear the end again for the last few seconds. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve on a different plate after 1 minute.
