A few quick easy steps for bacon wrapped scallops!
Come get our fresh day boat Maine scallops!
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. If you don’t cook the bacon first it might not be crisp enough.
Turn oven to broil and move oven rack to the highest position. Wrap each slice of bacon around a scallop and hold it in place with a toothpick or skewer.
Place bacon wrapped scallops on a the wire rack atop the rimmed baking sheet. Place scallops 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!
If additional flavor is wanted, drizzle on a little maple syrup just before they are done cooking!
