Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Don't be afraid...scallops can be a little intimidating, but they are yummy! This meal is TOO EASY to not at least try! This recipe feeds two people, so adjust accordingly!

6 slices bacon (I prefer Wright's ~ it is thick and doesn't shrink up!)
12 sea scallops
garlic salt, to taste
juice of one large lemon


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Cut bacon slices in half and place a scallop on a half of a slice of bacon.
3. Sprinkle scallop with garlic salt.

4. Wrap bacon around the scallop and secure with a toothpick.

5. Repeat with remaining scallops and place on metal cookie sheet.

6. Roll lemon back and forth with your hand a few times. This gets the juices flowing and makes it easier to juice. Cut lemon in half and squeeze both halves over scallops.

7. Bake 15-20 minutes and then turn broiler on until bacon is cooked.
