  • 1 lb
    bacon, cut in half crossways (use low sodium bacon since scallops are salty)
  • 1 lb
    giant sea scallops or 2 pounds small sea scallops, rinsed
  • 1/2 c
    extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c
    dry italian vermouth
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 tsp
    garlic powder
  • 1 tsp
    ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp
    onion powder
  • dash(es)

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Scallops


  1. 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.
  2. 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)
  3. 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.
