  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings. Crumble the bacon once cool to the touch.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Heat the reserved bacon drippings in a separate skillet over medium heat. Stir the butter and garlic salt into the bacon drippings; allow the butter to melt completely. Cook the scallops in the butter mixture until there is a light brown coating on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the scallops to a baking dish. Spoon the butter sauce over the scallops. Drizzle the horseradish sauce over the scallops and sprinkle with the crumbled bacon.
  4. Bake the scallops under the preheated broiler until the sauce begins to bubble, about 1 minute.

Made this dish as directed. It was very salty. I would ommit the garlic salt and use fresh garlic. Also I would have preferred they more spicey. I would use more horseradish next time.

These are AMAZING! I had something similar at a restaurant and these were so much better!!

I liked the concept of this recipe and will make again. However, as a few reviewers noted, salty as is. When you first begin making the recipe you do not realize that the scallops will be small...

Great recipe!! A unique idea with the horseradish sauce ... was a bit skeptical of it when I read the recipe but the taste was outstanding! Great also as appetizers on toothpicks.

I made these the other night and they are AMAZING! I had something similar at a restaurant and thought I would give this recipe a try, and it was so much better than the restaurants!

Delicious and so easy...Family loved them.. I would recommend mixing in the horseradish sauce so it is evenly incorporated throughout the dish. Served with a caesar salad and twice baked potatoe...

original recipe is ridiculously salty but fixable. replace the garlic salt with garlic powder and cut the bacon portion in 1/2.

These are seriously delicious. I love scallops but my husband isn't a big fan so I've been trying to find a recipe that we can both like and share. I made a tester batch last night as an appe...

Great recipe. I'm always searching for new seafood recipes and this one was unique, easy and delicious!
