Bacon Wrapped Scallops and Chili Dipping Sauce
This is one of those things that I make only for myself- no one else in the family appreciates a good scallop…
Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Chili Dipping Sauce
Chili Dipping Sauce:
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
12-14 scallops (large ones) rinsed and dried
1 package bacon-cut in half crosswise
Salt, pepper and Old Bay Seasoning (to taste)
Make ahead and refrigerate: Mix the chili sauce and the mayonnaise in a small bowl and refrigerate until you’re ready to make the scallops-overnight is best to let the flavors marry.
Preheat your oven broiler to high and move the top rack to the highest level in your oven. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Pat off the scallops really well, then wrap a piece of bacon around each, securing with a toothpick (or two). Season the scallops with salt, pepper and Old Bay. Cook under the broiler for about 25 minutes, turning once half way through and checking periodically so the toothpicks don’t catch on fire. Serve with the Chili Dipping Sauce.
