Ingredients

  • 10 large scallops , dry packed and muscle removed
  • 10 strips bacon
  • 4 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 10 long toothpicks
  • chives , minced for garnish

Instructions

  • Soak your toothpicks in water for up to an hour, but a minimum of 15 minutes. You want them good and soaked before going under the broiler for a long period of time.
  • Preheat broiler to high heat.
  • Make sure your scallops are rinsed and the muscle has been removed. Pat dry using a paper towel.
  • Wrap each scallop with a strip of bacon, securing with a toothpick.
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Place under broiler for 5-6 minutes. Remove and baste with BBQ sauce. Return to oven for 2 minutes.
  • Remove and turn over. Return to oven for 5-6 minutes.
  • Remove and baste with BBQ sauce. Return to oven for 2-3 minutes, or until bacon edges are dark and crispy.
  • Remove, garnish with chives and serve immediately.

Notes

*Scallop size can vary greatly and therefore so can cooking times. These scallops were colossal size, about 2 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches thick. They took a total of 13 minutes to cook. Make adjustments based on your scallop size. This will also impact your bacon size.
