Costco had a great deal on scallops recently so I picked up a bag. Ended up making this with the chives I grow in my kitchen window herb garden.
Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops with Lemon Chive Sauce
1 and 1/2 pounds sea scallops
1/3 pound bacon (cut slices in half)
1/4 pound melted butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and wine together; when melted, add paprika,
seasoned salt, and lemon juice. Drop scallops into melted wine and butter sauce. Allow scallops
to marinate for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together the ingredients for the lemon chive sauce. Set aside.
Wrap each scallop with half a piece of bacon and fasten bacon with a toothpick. Place wrapped
scallops in a baking pan and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, then turn over and cook
another 8 minutes or until scallops turn opaque. Serve with the sauce for dipping.
