I need to make some of these real soon.[p]anyone have any ideas to make theirs stand out[p]Jan[p]P.S. I know that you RTD have made these and they looked wonderful....what special seasonings did you use?



  • Metalhead,
    I found this one by Wise One. If Bill cooks it, it has to be good.

    <p />Metalhead,
    jamaican firewalk, mon![p]or was it raging river with a smoked jalapeno on the side. i can't remember now.[p]the trick is to wrap them over the top and under the bottom instead of around the edge, then cook them so the bacon is on the grid and it protects the scallop from the direct heat, then flip to the other bacon side. a trick i learned from dr bbq

    Metalhead,[p]We had a 7 course gourmet dinner at a plantation home on the Ms. river near baton Rouge Saturday night ( - if you ever get the chance, don't pass it up!). The first course was a scallop that had been sliced in 2, with a thin (~1/8") peice of Foie Gras sandwiched between the peices. I am not a big fan of any kind of liver - but Foie Gras was a bit different than any I have ever tried before - and the combination was quite tasty. I figure that wrapping the thing in bacon would take it to the next level and it would be out of this world!

  • Rick's Tropical Delight,
    them thangs are so slippery they are hard to wrap[p]I got some JFW from DP so I'll try that...if they
    taste anything like your pics look then YUMMMMMMMMY[p]Jan

  • Metalhead,proscuitto instead of bacon is a nice twist. This also gets rid of a lot of grease drippings. Turkey bacon is less greasy as well.

    i like them straight up, no seasoning they already have good flavor. maybe some grilled pineapple on the side.

  • Rick's Tropical Delight,
    i dont understand how people can cook bacon wrapped scallops. doesnt the bacon take longer to cook? i assume you first cook the bacon for a little bit no?

  • manny,
    I use proscuitto.[p]Mike

    <p />manny,
    it's very easy really.
    it's done when the bacon is done.
    cook them with the bacon on the grid instead of the scallop on the grid. the bacon will shield most of the scallop from the direct heat as i tried to explain in another post. you don't have to use bacon if you don't want to. you can precook the bacon a bit prior to wrapping if you want. just the plain scallops with nothing are great if you have a good supplier.[p]6jan07-014.jpg
