Directions

  1. Stir together maple syrup, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard in a bowl until smooth. Add the scallops, and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  3. Arrange bacon pieces on baking sheet so they do not overlap. Bake in preheated oven until some of the grease has rendered out of the bacon; the bacon should still be very soft and pliable, about 8 minutes. Remove bacon from the baking sheet and pat with paper towels to remove excess grease. Drain or wipe grease from the baking sheet.
  4. Wrap each scallop piece with a piece of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Place onto baking sheet. Sprinkle the scallops with brown sugar.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the scallops are opaque and the bacon is crisp, 10 to 15 minutes, turning once.

Absolutely Divine!!! This is the easiest most forgiving recipe for scallops I have found! Our family loves, loves, loves these.... Simple, quick and convenient for a weeknight supper as for the company table. A note of caution for those that don't normally cook scallops: Do not over marinate as they will turn rubbery. Try this, I GUARANTEE you will not be disappointed!!!!

I make these every so often to ensure I don't get tired of them and they're awesome. I don't use the mustard because I've never liked it, and I think they turn out really well without it. My only advice would be not to over-marinade the scallops; 20 minutes would be fine. Otherwise they have a strange texture. Thank you for your recipe!

I did not think this would end up good but it was!!!! I would say that you have to decide how sweat you want it and choose marinade time. Overnight gets very sweat and overly hides the seafood taste. 3 hours gets it about in the middle and still able to tast the scallops
