- 18 Sea Scallops
- 18 slice LGCM Bacon
- Bamboo Skewers (soaked in water for about 30 minutes)
Bake your bacon on a aluminum foil lined baking sheet for 12 minutes at 350° or until the bacon just starts to get golden but not crisp.
Once the bacon is golden, remove it from the oven and set aside to cool. While it is cooling, heat a grill to high heat (450°F) and brush the grates lightly with vegetable oil.
Lightly season the scallops on all sides with salt. Wrap each scallop with a piece of the bacon and stab a bamboo skewer through the middle of the bacon wrapped scallop to hold the bacon in place.
Once the grill is hot, grill each scallop for 2 minutes per side. Remove from grill and serve hot with fresh squeezed lemon juice and a dab of butter. Enjoy!
