Cajun Grilled Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

Ingredients (Serves 8)
Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 2 pounds shelled, large sea scallops


  • Bacon


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1 lemon, juiced


  • 1 tablespoon Garlic powder (to taste)


  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning


  • Toothpicks, soaked in water


  • Directions

    Preheat grill for medium-high heat.

    Partially cook bacon for 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave.

    Grilling Tip:
    Whenever you are grilling scallops wrapped in bacon, or anything on the grill for that matter, first pre-cook the bacon partially. This makes it easier to wrap and it makes sure you don't burn your meat while waiting for the bacon to cook through on the grill.

    Wrap each scallop with a thin slice of bacon, and secure with a soaked toothpick.

    Sprinkle each side of your scallops with the lemon juice, garlic powder, and cajun seasoning.

    Lightly oil grill grate. Grill bacon wrapped scallops 7 minutes per side or until opaque and bacon is cooked through.

    Ingredients (Serves 8)
    Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
