Bacon Wrapped Scallops

We’ve given this classic appetizer a bit of a twist. A little hint of heat from a simple spice rub compliments the richness of the meats so well. Serve these with sparkling wine, or a very dry Riesling.

BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS:

12 slices Schneiders® Hickory Smoked Classic Cut Bacon

12 Large fresh scallops, patted dry

DRY RUB:

2 tbsp Paprika

1 tsp Salt

2 tsp Onion powder

2 tsp Garlic powder

2 tsp Black pepper

2 tsp Thyme

2 tsp Oregano

½ tsp Cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

Mix together all the spice rub ingredients and set aside.

Lay bacon slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cook in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Remove from oven to cool slightly.

Wrap each scallop in a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle both sides liberally with spice rub.

Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the scallops are firm and opaque.
