When I make this I use thin sliced bacon and microwave it for a minute. Otherwise the bacon does not get done enough for me.

Why do you bother brushing your baon with oil? There is so much fat in it already.

Good idea. I was thinking the bacon wouldn't be done enough for me in that recipe. I bet that microwave/thin sliced bacon trick would work with other stuff too.

If you like bacon wrapped seafood you should always give the bacon a headstart, but since I like limp bacon too, and don't mind *slightly* over cooked shrimp or scallops, I usually don't bother. I can handle an over cooked shrimp if there's bacon wrapped around it, since you are pretty much masking the the shrimp or scallop anyway. But that's my taste.

You can use "regular" bacon as long as you cook it halfway before you wrap it around the scallop. Nothing worse to me than an overcooked scallop. They turn into a pencil eraser with protein.

One thing worse than overcooked scallops is undercooked bacon

Hear, hear!

I've been know to unwrap the bacon on a filet mignon and throw it away, because it was undercooked.
