Can you say delicious and fast – oh, and add healthy, too. Scallops are one of my favorite types of shellfish…slightly sweet, with a silky, melt-in-your mouth texture. Easy, easy to make on a hurried weeknight. And best of all they are also full of B vitamins, iron and selenium.
This is hands-down my favorite way to prepare scallops – wrapped in salty, smoky slices of bacon and baked until the bacon is crisp. It’s great as an appetizer, but be sure to make lots because they disappear fast!
You could vary the recipe, if you like, using turkey bacon or prosciutto. Be creative and make it your own!
**Based on some great feedback and suggestions for improvement from readers (which I tried and loved!), I’ve made a few changes to this recipe. So enjoy bacon-wrapped scallops 2.0!**
