DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • If you prefer, the bacon can be pre-cooked for a couple of minutes in the microwave to insure it will be crispy by the time the scallops are done.
  • Do not overcook the scallops as they will be rubbery.
  • Cut each piece of bacon in half to make 24 pieces.
  • Roll a piece of bacon around each scallop and secure on wooden skewers.
  • Place scallops on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle with Old Bay and creole seasoning.
  • Both seasonings contain salt, so don't overdo it!
  • Amounts listed are what I used.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until the scallops are done.
  • The bacon should be crispy.
  • While the scallops are cooking, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar in a saucepan to make the dipping sauce.
  • Mix well and cook until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Serve the scallops with the dipping sauce.
