Mom's Favourite Seafood Appetizers

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

My mom loves seafood...this is one of her favourite dishes right up there with boiled east coast lobster and homemade clam chowder. These are easy to make and don't take long...great for when you get unexpected company.

Love the idea of using maple-flavored bacon, but I had to use low-sodium bacon, which is what I had on hand. I just made a quarter of the recipe, using 1/2 lb sea scallops and 1 can pineapple chunks (no shrimp, no water chestnuts). This is quick and yummy, and I can't wait to have it with the maple-type bacon!
