Pretty much all my life I've imposed a strict ‘no Christmas talk before December' rule on myself. Now here I am, creeping all too near forty, and I'm about to break my rule for the second time this season.

I'm planting half the blame on these bacon scallop lollipops and the other half on all the Christmas parties around the corner.

And in case you haven't guessed it yet, these bacon wrapped scallops should be your go-to party appy this season, and every year forever and always. They are super easy to make, can be prepped ahead of time, and (most importantly) and insanely delicious.

I've made these Bacon Scallop Lollipops with Marina del Rey scallops. Have you had them before? They are sustainably caught, wild scallops and are better than any scallop I've tried.

They are plump, sweet, juicy and so delicious. Since trying them for the first time only a month ago, I've already gone through four bags. ← That's the truth! Scallop-fest.

Marina del Rey scallops (and my other crush, their Wild Argentinian Shrimp) are both the highest quality wild seafood. They add no water or chemicals, like other brands. And because they're wild, you never have to worry about things like antibiotics, hormones, color, and chemicals that are found in farmed seafood.

They're also super healthy for you. Scallops are high in protein, low in calories, and rich in Omega 3s. Maybe it's because they're wild, or maybe it's because of the cold Icelandic water they grow in, but these scallops are the best.

Marina del Rey scallops are available across Canada.  Visit this page for a list of retailers.

Making these Bacon Scallop Lollipops is super simple:

1.  Prep the bacon. Cut the bacon in half then cook it for a few minutes while the oven is preheating. You don't want it fully-cooked, just a little. Cooking the bacon first means the scallops won't overcook.

2.  Wrap the scallops. Let the bacon cool for a minute then wrap it around the scallops. I find it easier to cut a little off the bacon so that each strip is the same height as the scallops. I save the little scraps and have them for breakfast. Twist a toothpick through the scallop to hold the bacon in place.

3.  Make the glaze. Mix some honey, sriracha, and lime juice in a small bowl. Dip each lollipop in the glaze.

4.  Broil the bacon scallop lollipops. You may want to take the battery out of your smoke alarm, or at the very least open the window. There will be a bit of smoke. It's par for course when broiling these babies.

5.  Eeeeeaaat. All. The. Scallops. Repeat.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Place a baking rack on the top shelf in your oven (and keep the other in the middle) and turn your oven to broil. Place some toothpicks (you'll need about 20) in a cup of water.
  2. Cut the bacon in half then place them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the bacon in your oven for 5-6 minutes on the middle rack, while your oven is heating up. You want the bacon to just start to cook, but still be pliable enough to wrap around the scallops. Remove the bacon from the oven and it cool slightly.
  3. While the bacon is in the oven, mix the honey, sriracha, and lime juice in a small bowl.
  4. Wrap one piece of bacon (1/2 slice) around each scallop and secure in place with a toothpick. Dip the scallops in the glaze and place them on a baking sheet.
  5. Place the scallops in the oven on the top rack and broil for 5 minutes. Take the baking sheet out of the oven. (If there is any liquid on the sheet, carefully hold the baking sheet over your sink at an angle and drain the liquid.) Flip the scallops over and spoon any remaining glaze over the top. Broil for another 5 minutes then serve right away.

Notes

I don't recommend using parchment paper (like you see in the photos) as it is a fire hazard at high heat. I used it to hide my old baking sheets. 🙂
