Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Fish has never really been my thing. When I was younger my family would throw huge get together's in the summer time with tons of steamed clams and shrimp cocktails and I would eat them with no problem. While my family still has get together's, clams don't grace the table often. In the summer time it's fish fry's made with trout or bass and in the winter it's bacon wrapped scallops. I will not eat scallops any other way. The salty smoky flavor from the bacon permeates the delicate flesh and taste of the scallops. They make the perfect and elegant appetizer for any dinner party. You can use either bay scallops which are smaller, about 100 per pound and sweeter in taste, or the big sea scallops which have a chewier taste. Bay scallops  generally come from the east coast and have a very short season, but are less expensive then sea scallops whose season runs from fall to spring.

What you need:

Approx 1 lb of sea scallops, or 1/2 lb bay scallops
Approx 1 lb of sliced bacon
Salt and Pepper

What to do:

If you are using the larger sea scallops cut them in half. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Cut the bacon in half or into thirds depending on the size of scallops and wrap one piece around a scallop. Use a tooth pick to secure if needed. Place under a broiler until the bacon is crisp and the scallop is cooked through. Just a few mins should do it.
