Another family recipe from my favorite cousin! These are a little work, but delicious. They can be made in the oven or on the grill. Sure to be a hit!
prep time10 Hr
cook time15 Min
bacon, cut in half crossways (use low sodium bacon since scallops are salty)
giant sea scallops or 2 pounds small sea scallops, rinsed
extra virgin olive oil
dry italian vermouth
fresh parsley, minced
ground black pepper
How To Make
Wrap one bacon piece around each scallop, if necessary securing with a wooden toothpick, or you can secure them on kabob skewers.
Place wrapped scallops in a baking dish.
Combine olive oil, vermouth, parsley, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder and oregano in small bowl, mixing well.
Pour over the scallops.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. (Marinating overnight or up to 8 hours gives best results)
Remove scallops from marinade. Arrange on broiler pan and broil, 4 inches from heat 7 to 10 minutes or until bacon is brown.
Turn over and brown other side for about 5 minutes.
Remove wooden toothpicks or from skewers, arrange on platter lined with greens. Garnish as desired. **these can also be done on the grill**
To serve just slide them off the skewer or toothpick and serve with fancy toothpicks.
You can also double this recipe-it still comes out really well.
