Minnesota Cooking: Grilled Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Bacon and Scallops
Who knew that bacon wrapped around a scallop could taste so yummy. It does. That crisp bacon flavor, and that scallop with enhanced flavor.
- Line a pizza pan with aluminum foil. Open bacon. Use one raw bacon slice per frozen scallop. Place scallop on one end of bacon and roll scallop into bacon. Place on aluminum. Repeat.
- Start electric grill. Place pan in grill. Set timer for 40 minutes.
- 1 pound raw bacon
- 1 package frozen scallops
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
Bacon - Frozen Scallop
Lay the bacon down. Place scallop on one end. Pull end of bacon up over scallop. Continue to roll scallop to the other end of the bacon. The scallops are frozen, so you will not need to use a toothpick to hold the bacon.
Set the bacon wrapped scallop on end, so that you can see the scallop in the middle of the bacon. Place it on the aluminum foil covered pizza pan. Repeat with remaining scallops. Leave space between the scallops.
Place on cold grill. Start the electric grill, on highest setting. Set timer for 40 minutes. This will allow the scallop to thaw and cool while bacon heats up and crisps.
My scallops came in a bag. Frozen. I opened the bag and dumped them out. I waited until our company arrived, and in the confusion that followed, managed to wrap them all and place them on the grill.
I did not, however, manage to grab a photo of them wrapped, nor did I get a picture of them on the grill. Nor did I remember to take any photos of them in the crock pot.
All I have, is a picture of them before I started. Frozen. In the bag.
In the Crock Pot
I did place all the cooked scallops in our crock pot, and I poured lemon juice over the top of them.
I loved that. What a great taste sensation!
