Scallop Bacon Wraps

I have this (bad) habit of storing (more expensive) food during Chinese New Year. Stuff I usually buy once a while (if I have leftover marketing money). Maybe I get more marketing money during this period. hehehe. My hubby 'scolded' me, "Let you keep some pocket money, you do want. And buy so much food for what?" Hehehe .... I like to eat mah. Everyone can eat also mah. *bleh*

By the way, I had this idea from a Italian Food Stall/Kiosk at Bukit Panjang Plaza. It's no longer there. I really miss it! 3 huge scallops wrapped with thick bacon grilled to perfection for only $2. *drooling*

  • Bacon, sliced into 2 width-wise (My scallop is small lah ^_-)
  • Scallops
How to do it:
  1. Saute the bacon for about 1 minute.
  2. Remove.
  3. Take a scallop and use the bacon cooked earlier to wrap around the scallop.
  4. Pierce a toothpick thru the bacon and scallop to hold them together.
  5. Bring it to the pan you use to saute the bacon earlier.
  6. Cook each side of the bacon for about 5 mins each (longer for bigger scallop)
  7. Add a bit of oil if necessary.
  8. Remove and serve. Remember to remove the toothpick.
  • No seasoning required as bacon is already salty.
  • Make sure the bacon is of the same height or lower than the scallop when wrapping them. That is when you need to slice them into half.
  • Wet you toothpick first before you use them. This is to prevent your toothpick for getting burned or catching fire because oil is involved.
