Bacon Wrapped Scallops

When you see huge, fresh, juicy scallops for sale at your local market, by all means - get them!  Don't be afraid to make scallops.  The worst thing that can happen is you overcook them and they are a little chewy, but still delicious.  The sweet, tender, meaty bites taste of fresh ocean sprays.  And with a little lemon, you add the bright taste of sunshine.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Sea salt
Garlic powder
White pepper

Rinse your scallops.  Cut the bacon slices in half.  Wrap the bacon around each scallop and secure with a tooth pick.  Season with salt, garlic, and pepper.  Try not to over season because scallops taste divine all on their own.

Broil those tasty morsels with the bacon facing the heat.  Keep a close eye on them and turn them often so the bacon cooks all the way around.  They will cook in about 10 minutes.  The bacon should be completely cooked and the scallops opaque throughout.

Serve with some fresh lemon wedges, and, if you are feeling naughty, drizzle with melted butter!
