Bacon-Wrapped Scallops With Orange-Honey Sauce

Yield 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 pounds sea scallops
  • 12 bacon slices, cut in half
  • Orange-Honey Sauce

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic bag; add scallops. Cover or seal, and chill 30 minutes. Drain scallops, discarding marinade.

  2. Place bacon on a rack in a broiler pan; broil 6 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) about 2 minutes or until limp. Wrap bacon around scallops, and secure with wooden picks.

  3. Broil 10 to 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp and scallops are done, turning after 7 minutes. Serve scallops with Orange-Honey Sauce.
