"I like my bacon-wrapped scallops a little spicy, so I added a kick to them. I often prepare these for my husband for our date nights and serve them with steak."

Very nice and oh so quick. Here is a secret to a good sear on the scallops. Get your pan screaming hot - I used Grape Seed oil, as it has a high smoke point - place your wrapped scallops into the pan - don't over crowd them - and DO NOT MOVE them. The temptation is to shake and move the scallops around but hands off! About 3 minutes, give them a flip and the same thing with the other side. Let them sear without moving them. Have everything else for dinner ready and waiting. I served these with a lovely salad with sliced oranges, red onion, baby lettuce and sliced mushrooms. What a perfect meal.

These were fantastic and went together perfectly with an asparagus risotto. We didn't have a cajun seasoning mix on hand so we used the allrecipes Simple Cajun Seasoning recipe with garlic powder and onion powder as other users suggested.

The Baking Nana instructions of not moving the scallops was perfect. These were a huge hit at my family party this weekend. Very tasty and very easy. We used our 1000W microwave to pre-cook the bacon. We had 4 slices on a plate for 2:30 on high. Then when searing in the oil, they became perfectly crispy. We made about 20 scallops at a time. Will do this one again.
