RECIPE OF THE WEEK 

Bacon Wrapped Scallops 

from DinnerattheZoo- Sara  

Featuring Cambridge Creek Ranch's bacon.

This recipe calls for scallops, bacon, maple syrup, garlic powder, soy sauce, salt and pepper. That’s all there is to it! Each scallop is wrapped in half a slice of bacon and then secured with a toothpick. The remaining ingredients are mixed together to form a sweet and savory glaze that gets brushed over the scallops as they cook. Add a sprinkle of herbs, then serve and enjoy.

*Choose the largest scallops that you can afford. Larger scallops are easier to wrap with bacon and they won’t overcook as the bacon crisps up.

Prep time - 20 minutes 

Cook time - 15 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 2 pounds large sea scallops patted dry

  • 1 pound bacon slices cut in half crosswise

  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions 

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

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

  • 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.
