2 dozen

Recipe from

Southern Living


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


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.

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.

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