Cooking Instructions:

These bacon-wrapped scallops can be battered and fried, sauteed, or broiled, and are ideal for pasta, salads, and a variety of other applications. These large scallops are perfect as an appetizer or as the center of your plate.


Cooking:

Thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours prior to cooking. Once thawed, scallops dry with paper towels then skewer them with a pre soaked wooden skewer. Going through the bacon and scallops from the sides, making sure the flat sides of the scallops are showing.

Heat grill up to 400°F, using a pastry brush or basting brush, spread a thin layer of oil on each side of the scallops. Or for added flavor, use brown butter.

Season scallops with salt and freshly ground pepper, (you can also brush on a premade liquid marinade and skip the oil step).

Place scallop skewers on a preheated grill, and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip the skewer and repeat on the other side. Do not overcook the scallops, otherwise it will be tough and rubbery.

Optional: Brush on more brown butter or marinade after you take off the grill.

These can also be steamed, broiled, sauteed, baked or fried.

A side of grilled summer vegetables or fresh salad.
