Bacon Wrapped Scallops
This classic app gets an awesome update by basting with our BBQ. We also pre cook the bacon, so you have perfectly cooked scallops and crisp bacon every time.
What you need
6 slices bacon
12 large scallops
¼ cup Tessemae’s Matty’s BBQ Sauce
What to do
First, you need to pre cook the bacon. Heat a large skillet over medium low, add the bacon and cook until the fat is mostly rendered, but the bacon is still very soft. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and let cool. (See Step Shot Below.)
Wrap each scallop in a slice of bacon, rolling it around the outside edge. Secure it with a toothpick. Brush the scallop and the bacon with BBQ Sauce. Arrange the scallops on a foil lined baking sheet, scallop side up.
Heat your broiler to high. Set the rack 6 inches from the heat. (If you cannot move your rack, just turn more frequently.) This is not the recipe to set a timer and leave! The cooking time is going to vary depending on your broiler and on the size of your scallops. You are looking for these endpoints: crispy browned bacon and firm, white scallops. Broil, keeping a close eye, until one side is browned. Turn all the scallops over and broil the other side.
Serve the scallops hot, with extra BBQ sauce on the side.
