Made these for New Years using the large Sea Scallops.Another couple was over for dinner and we all thought this was on of the best scallop prperations we had ever had. I did leave the Bacon out as my husband thinks its an ingredient that is way over used. Perfect blend of ingredients that complimented the sweet flavor of the scallops and their delicate texture . I may put the bacon in next time I make these to see if there is much of a differance in flavor. These will definately be made againReply
