Bacon-wrapped scallops are one of the most luxurious appetizers you can serve, not to mention one of the easiest to prepare. And for me, that’s a great combination.
I like using big, plump Alaskan sea scallops and apple wood smoked Bacon. Because there are only two main ingredients in this dish, you need to make sure you use the best quality — the biggest, freshest sea scallops you can find, and the most flavorful Bacon. After that, they are so easy to grill that you hardly need a recipe.
This all-protein finger food appetizer is perfect for holiday entertaining. It’s simple to prep and quick to cook. You even could prepare them in advance. I pre-cook the Bacon to render some of the fat and make it soft and pliable for wrapping around the scallops. Then just refrigerate until your guests arrive and pop them on the grill when you want them.
We’ve also paired these with a simple maple-mustard sauce that is delicious dolloped on top of the scallops just before serving. But feel free to leave that off.
