Bacon Wrapped Scallops

I just saw this recipe made on the local noon news. It looked so good that I had to share.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Scallops:

4 scallops
4 strips bacon

Wrap 4 scallops with bacon and skewer two per skewer. Grill or pan sear until bacon is browned.


Sauce Ingredients:

1 Chipotle Chili in Adobo Sauce
1 pinch minced Garlic
1 pinch minced Shallots
1 pinch salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil
1 oz. White Wine
2 oz. Heavy Cream
1 oz. Butter
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Heat a saute pan to medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic and shallots. Brown slightly. Add chili. Deglaze the pan with white wine. Add lemon juice. Break up chili with a tong or spoon to spread the flavor. Add heavy cream. Reduce slightly until sauce starts to tighten. Finish with butter, removing from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped chives and serve with a lemon wedge.

Dip scallops in sauce.

Recipe is courtesy of Chef Evan Elsberry and The Family Room.

I love this recipe too, made it several times, without the sauce you mentioned. I used sea scallops, bacon to wrap them, a bit of worcheshire sauce and a small slice of pickled water melon rind, and then broil them. Yummy!

The chef said he served this at the restaurant as an appetizer. I just would want to eat them for dinner. Yummy. The news crew was handing out samples to the crowd. I wish I was there.
