Scallops and bacon

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large sea scallops patted dry
  • 1 pound bacon slices cut in half crosswise
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • cooking spray
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon juice

Preparations

    step 1

    Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.

    step 2

    Wrap a slice of bacon around each scallop and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the baking pan.

    step 3

    In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Brush half the mixture over the top of each of the scallops.

    step 4

    Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and scallops are cooked through. Brush the remaining sauce over the scallops halfway through the cook time.

    step 5

    Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
