This combination of scallops and bacon is a snap to prepare. Just wrap partially cooked bacon around a scallop, season, broil for a few minutes, and you have a tasty, elegant appetizer.

 

Ingredients:

  • 24 large sea scallops (about 2 pounds)
  • 12 slices partially cooked bacon
  • Seasoned pepper

Preparation:

Cook bacon gently until partially cooked but not crisp and still very flexible.*

Rinse scallops with running cold water, pat dry with paper towels. Cut each bacon slice crosswise in half; wrap each half around a scallop and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle scallops lightly with seasoned pepper. Preheat broiler.

Place scallops on rack in broiling pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until scallops turn opaque throughout, using tongs to turn scallops frequently so the bacon browns evenly on all sides.

*Instead of pan frying the bacon, try baking it. Just line a baking pan with parchment or fit it with a rack. Instructions for Baked Bacon
