Scallops Wrapped in Turkey Bacon

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in , ,

Put these on your appetizer menu this holiday season! These scallop wrapped in bacon are amazingly easy to make, impressive to display & won't break your budget! 


Time: 30 mins depending on how many you make


  • 2 cups scallops (I got mine from BJs, so inexpensive!)
  • 1 pack thin & crispy turkey bacon
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons black pepper
  • Toothpicks to keep the bacon in tact
  • 1 tablespoon butter for frying


  1. Break the turkey bacon into 3 parts, & break your toothpicks in half.
  2. Wrap each part around 1 scallop each, sealing it with 1/2 toothpick for each scallop.
  3. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  4. Heat the butter on medium heat in a large skillet.
  5. Add the bacon-wrapped scallops one by one so they can stand up & brown on the top.
  6. Turn them over after 2-3 mins & let them brown on the other side. 
  7. Let the bacon brown on all sides by pushing the scallops over & rolling them around - it won't take long to get crispy.
  8. Drain on paper towels & serve!
