Bacon wrapped scallops: the jackpot of the wedding cocktail hour.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a meatball, a mini crabcake, maybe even a stuffed mushroom.  But if you’re looking for my husband at a wedding, just find the server with the tray of bacon wrapped scallops.  He’s sure to be nearby.

You don’t really need a recipe for bacon wrapped scallops, but this spicy chili mayo as an accompaniment makes this worthy of a post.

I cut these scallops into halves (and sometimes thirds) with the goal of making these bite-sized.

You’ll need:

  • 1 pound scallops
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • toothpicks
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chili paste (I prefer sambal – thicker than sriracha)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

Preheat your broiler to 550.

Wrap each scallop (or scallop piece) in half a piece of bacon; hold the bacon in place with a toothpick.

Place on a cookie sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Broil for 15 minutes, turning once.

Combine the mayo, chili paste, and rice vinegar, and serve with scallops!  Couldn’t be easier.
