Cooking Light
4 servings (serving size: 6 scallops)


+ Add To Shopping List
3 tablespoons minced green onions
2 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
24 large sea scallops (1 1/2 pounds)
6 low-sodium bacon slices (4 ounces)
Cooking spray


Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Add scallops, stirring gently to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Remove scallops from bowl, reserving marinade. Cut each slice of bacon into 4 pieces.Wrap 1 bacon piece around each scallop (bacon might only wrap halfway around scallops if they are very large). Thread scallops onto 4 (12-inch) skewers, leaving some space between scallops so bacon will cook.

Place skewers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 8 minutes or until bacon is crisp and scallops are done, basting occasionally with reserved marinade (cooking time will vary greatly with size of scallops).
