Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
How do you translate this time-tested hors d’oeuvre into a grilled entrée? With a handful of easy tricks.
Why This Recipe Works
To recast this cocktail-party favorite as a grilled entrée, we had to find a way to get sturdy, fatty bacon and lean, delicate scallops to come together. Parcooking the bacon in the microwave rendered some of the fat, preventing flare-ups when it hit the grill. Wrapping each bacon slice around two scallops made for the best ratio, and skewering the bundles ensured that everything stayed put. Grilled lemon halves squeezed over the top are the final touch.
