- 12 large scallops, rinsed and dried
- 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cut in half cross-wise
- 4 wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for 15 minutes
- Salt and pepper
Prep and Cook
Preheat the broiler and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Wrap each scallop with a piece of bacon, sliding 3 pieces onto a wooden skewer. Place the bacon-wrapped scallops onto the prepared baking sheet and lightly season them with salt and pepper.
Cook for 8–12 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked through and crispy, turning once mid-way through. Serve warm or at room temperature, alongside a simple green salad for light summer eating.
Serve the skewers with a lime sour cream made by mixing ½ cup sour cream with the juice of 1 lime, and a tablespoon of chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Scallop skewers can be cooked on a preheated and oiled grill.
The skewers can be prepared in advance. Wrap the scallops with the bacon and store covered in the fridge until ready to cook.
