  • 1 pound large scallops (about 12)
  • 12 slices bacon


  • Rinse the scallops in cold water. Remove the "foot" from the scallops. Pat dry.
  • Cut the bacon to fit around the scallops. The size of the scallops will determine how long you cut the bacon strips.
  • Use a really long skewer instead of a short cocktail pick and then push the scallop all the way to the end of the skewer, securing the bacon in the skewer.
  • Place on a baking sheet under the broiler for about 8 minutes until the bacon is cooked and crispy, turning skewers halfway. Transfer scallops to a paper towel lined plate to dab off excess grease before serving.


  • Scallops are graded by number per pound. Use larger scallops, which are about 10 to pound.
  • Soaking the skewers will prevent burning.
  • Use long skewers for a more elegant presentation.
