How Do You Cook Scallops With Bacon?
Scallops are easy to prepare and go well with white wine. There are many ways to prepare this shellfish, including soups, quiche, grilled, breaded and sautéed. Scallops with bacon can be a delicious appetizer or a main course. Rinse scallops in cold running water. Dry on a paper towel. Use 1/4 to 1/2 slice of bacon, depending on the size of your scallops, to wrap the scallop. Secure with either a skewer or toothpick. Sprinkle scallops with salt and pepper or seasoning salt.
