Here is another delicious, yet simple recipe from The Food Addicts. Check out the entire posting on their site here.

Here’s what they have put together:
For something that is so simple, it is unbelievably tasty. At first I was thinking – what is so special about bacon-wrapped scallops? There’s not much to it, except wrapping cooked bacon around some scallops. Right? But when I took my first bite into this delectable appetizer, I was in heaven.

We wanted to share this simple go-to dish that is a great idea for dinner parties, potlucks, cocktail events, or better yet – the upcoming SUPERBOWL! We paired the bacon-wrapped scallops with a spicy habanero-mayo dipping sauce. Be creative with your dipping sauce – and if you can’t think of anything, we are sure you will be pleased with eating them by itself!

We used sea scallops that were about 1.5 inches and took pre-cooked bacon and wrapped them around the scallops. Then, we used tookthpicks to secure them, like shown.

Next, sprinkle the scallops with a little sea salt and cook them on a pan for about 3-4 minutes each side until they get nice and brown.

For the dipping sauce, we just used 1 tbsp of Cayenne Habanero Sauce from All Spice Cafe and mixed it with 3 tbsp light mayo. The mayo helps reduce the amount of heat, and also gives it a creamy texture.

The texture of the scallops and the saltiness of the bacon work so well together. It’s not difficult to make and doesn’t take a lot of time to prep. These are definitely perfect finger food that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! (Okay, I think we need to make more… I’m salivating).
