HOW DO YOU MAKE BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS?
This recipe calls for scallops, bacon, maple syrup, garlic powder, wrapped in half a slice of bacon and then secured with a toothpick. The remaining ingredients are mixed together to form a sweet and savory glaze that gets brushed over the scallops as they cook. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, then serve and enjoy.
The bacon takes longer to cook through than the scallops – so our next tip is to partially-cook the bacon before it gets wrapped around the scallop. We bake our bacon in the oven on sheet pans – just long enough that the bacon strips are cooked but still pliable, then drained on paper towels to absorb as much excess fat as possible.
Scallops are so meaty and delicious, and take just minutes to cook which makes this a perfect fast weeknight dish. the scallops come out perfectly juicy and tender on the inside, with crisp golden bacon on the outside in under 15 minutes.
