Making perfect bacon wrapped scallops is easy, but it does require a couple of steps to ensure that both the bacon and the scallops are perfectly cooked.

Ingredients
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 16 large sea scallops (fresh or thawed)
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Lay bacon on a wire rack fitted on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, flipping bacon halfway through cooking. You want the bacon only partially cooked so that it is still pliable enough to wrap around the scallops. Cool bacon until you can handle it.
  2. Turn oven to broil and move oven rack to the highest position. Cut bacon in half width-wise. Wrap each half slice of bacon around a scallop and hold it in place with a toothpick or skewer.
  3. Place bacon wrapped scallops on a the wire rack atop the rimmed baking sheet. Place sheet under broiler. Broil for 4-6 minutes on each side, watching them closely. Flip scallops when tops are just beginning to brown. Don't overcook.
