A super easy recipe I got last week at a New Years Party. They are a meal in themselves.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs sea scallops
- 1⁄3 lb bacon, cut slices in half
- 1⁄4 lb butter, melted
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoned salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and wine together, when melted add paprika, seasoned salt, and lemon juice. Drop scallops into melted wine and butter sauce. Allow scallops to marinade for about 30 minutes. Wrap each scallop with half piece of bacon, and fasten bacon with a toothpick. Place wrapped scallops onto a baking sheet, and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, then turn over and bake for another 8 minutes or until the scallops are opaque.
Really liked this recipe. The scallops were just right, nice and tender without being overdone. The only modification that I made was the addition of 1 tsp of minced shallots and 1 tsp of minced fresh garlic to the butter/wine mixture, which I sautéed until tender before adding the paprika, lemon and season salt.
