Grilled Bacon Wrapped Scallops

 

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Scallops

  • 1 package bacon
  • 1 lb scallops, rinsed and dried
  • 2 Tbsp fresh sage, minced
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large lemon, cut into wedges

Soak toothpicks in water for about 30 minutes to insure they do not burn on the grill. 

In a 12″ sauté pan, bring 2″ of water to a simmer.  Place the bacon strips in the water and parboil* the bacon strips for about 3 minutes.  Set aside.  Wrap pieces of bacon around each scallop and thread with a toothpick to keep together.  Transfer the wrapped scallops onto a baking sheet (with sides).  Grill the scallops for 2-3 minutes per side over a medium hot fire.  Remove the scallops from the grill and serve hot with lemon wedges.

 

*Partially cooking food to boiling it in water before it is finished cooking using another method.
