Ingredients and Method


  • 2 pounds sea scallops
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  2. Wrap a slice of bacon around each scallop and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the baking pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Brush half the mixture over the top of each of the scallops.
  4. Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and scallops are cooked through. Brush the remaining sauce over the scallops halfway through the cook time.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
