Recipe: Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
10 slices bacon
10 sea scallops
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Arrange bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning
occasionally, until lightly browned but still pliable, about 5 minutes.
Drain the bacon slices on paper towels.
Wrap each slice of bacon around one sea scallop and secure with a
toothpick. Season with Cajun seasoning.
Heat olive oil in a clean skillet over medium-high heat; sear scallops
until golden and bacon is crisp, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Squeeze lemon
over scallops. Serve immediately.
Comments: For a good sear on the scallops get your pan screaming hot.
