Ingredients

  • 1 pkg of Toothpicks
  • 2 lbs. of Thick Premium Quality Bacon
  • 2 lbs. of U-10 or 10/20 Dry Packed Sea Scallops
  • ½ cup of Olive Oil
  • 3-4 large Lemons juiced
  • Kosher Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of Chopped Thyme

Instructions

  • Soak toothpicks in a small bowl of water for 10-15 minutes prior to use to keep them from flaring up when on the grill. Preheat well oiled grill to medium-high heat.
  • Wrap Sea Scallops with strips of bacon and use a toothpick to hold the ends together. As you wrap them, place them side by side on a large baking sheet or platter.
  • Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice on top of the wrapped scallops and then season with Kosher Salt, Cracked Black Pepper, and Thyme.
  • Place wrapped scallops on grill and cook them for 3-4 minutes each side. Don’t overcook as the scallops will become tough and tasteless. Remove from heat and serve with Chipotle Mayo as a dipping sauce and lemon wedges.
  • Enjoy!!

Notes

(NOTE: Buy good bacon that isn’t all fat. I made the mistake of buying fatty bacon and had to put some extra work in wrapping and skewering the scallops.)
