Bacon Wrapped Jumbo Scallops


It is pretty hard for me to ignore the jumbo scallops that are commonly available in supermarkets here. In Malaysia, we usually use dried scallops (江瑶柱) for soup cooking - it enhances the flavor and sweetness of the soup. But it is not cheap! LOL!!

I bought a pack of Japanese jumbo frozen scallops last week, craving for bacon wrapped scallops badly! It is an expensive dish served in western restaurants here. I would rather buy as many as I want and cook it by myself. You don't have to panic about how to season it, scallops don't need too much seasoning on it as their original taste is good enough to make you drool for it. :-)


Here are the ingredients and steps :

1. 6 thawed jumbo scallops (about 0.5lbs) - pat dry with paper tower
2. 6 slices of thin half cooked bacon (don't cook too crispy)
3. Some dill and thyme flakes
4. 3 BBQ skewer - soak in water for at least 1 hour before use.
5. Some lime slices (if desired)

Steps :

1. Wrap each scallop with a piece of bacon, secure with BBQ skewer.
2. Sprinkle some thyme and dill flakes on both sides.
3. Grill over medium heat for 3~4 minutes each side.
4. Sprinkle some lime juice on top of it (if desired).
5. Serve warm.
