Bacon Wrapped Scallops Pan Seared Recipe

This is hands down my favorite appetizer right now.  We haven’t done a date night, oh in about 6 months.  When we do we usually end up at Morton’s Steakhouse and we always start with bacon wrapped scallops.  So with no date night in the near future, I threw together my own version.  I have broiled these but the searing technique is so much better in my opinion.  Here is my favorite pan seared bacon wrapped scallops recipe.

seared scallop ingredients

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Ingredients:

1/2 lb Large Sea Scallops (I get about 6 scallops) If they are really huge like mine I suggest cutting them in halves to get 2 out of each.

Bacon

1/2 teaspoon garlic

4 Tablespoons apricot preserve spread

Kosher salt & Plack cracked pepper (to taste)

Lemon wedge (garnish)

1/2 Stick of butter or oil

Wood Toothpicks

I cut my scallops in half and they are still about an inch tall.  I gauge the height I want by the bacon.  I want the bacon to wrap nicely around the scallops.

Cook bacon slices 3 -4 minutes in the microwave to get them cooked half way.  Place them on a plate with a napkin.

Wrap bacon around each scallop and hold together with a toothpick.  Sprinkle on cracked pepper and a dash of kosher salt.
