Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Seafood / Appetizer / Dinner / Main Course / Party Snack
These bacon wrapped scallops are scallops coated in a sweet and savory glaze, then broiled to perfection. A simple yet elegant appetizer or main course option that is sure to get rave reviews!
2 pounds scallops patted dry
1 pound bacon slices cut in half crosswise
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Wrap a slice of bacon around each scallop and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the baking pan.
In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Brush half the mixture over the top of each of the scallops.
Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and scallops are cooked through. Brush the remaining sauce over the scallops halfway through the cook time.
Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
You can serve these scallops on their own as a party snack, or with side dishes as a main course. I like to serve my bacon wrapped scallops over mashed potatoes, pasta in cream sauce, or steamed rice. I also add a green vegetable on the side such as broccoli, asparagus or green beans.
