I am so happy I found this recipe for scallops, OMG - delicious! It's different enough to be a dinner party worthy, and easy enough for a weeknight. I did have to change the procedure a little, but did use all the ingredients, but instead of skewering the bacon wrapped scallops (cuz I was out of wooden skewers), here's what I did: I cut the bacon into bite-sized pieces, and cooked in a large frying pan, til crispy and set aside. I then poured out most of the bacon fat, and then heated the pan to high, and cooked the scallops til they were golden on each side and just barely cooked inside. I then added the bacon to the pan, and the marinade that was left over. Heated it all through for about 2 minutes to finish cooking the scallops. Served over steamed green beans - awesome!!!
Wife is a big plain scallops fan. she likes a little salt and butter on hers. She thought these were great for a change. Not something she'd eat every time but still liked them a lot. I found that they were relatively easy to prepare, just make sure to marinate prior to the time you want to make dinner, and make sure you melt your butter prior to mixing it in marinade.
We liked this light marinade & sauce.Easy to make,not too salty,sweet or thick,it allowed the freshness of the scallops room & complemented the smokey bacon flavor well.I will make this again!
The boubon flavor was way too strong. I don't know if I was suppose to caramelize or sear them more? It sounded delicious but made me a little sick.
This was great! Thanks Julesong ;)
"Outstanding" doesn't even cover how wonderful these were. I only got about 16 scallops in 1 1/2 pounds, so they must have been on the big side. The bacon didn't go all the way around and they did burn a bit before the scallops were done, but it didn't matter. The bacon did the job of keeping the scallops really moist and tender, we just chucked the bacon before eating! We ate these with a green salad and some rice. It was perfect. The kids loved them as well!
