Red Lobster Bacon Wrapped Scallops | Broiled
20 mins
Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 10 mins | Servings: 2


  • 4 medium sea scallops
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 pound melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon warm bottled clam juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 pinch of ground pepper
  • 4 toothpicks


  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Boil 2 to 3 cups of water in a small pan over high heat. Salt the water.
  3. Boil the scallops in the water for 3 to 4 minutes, or until they are firm up. Drain the scallops when they are done.
  4. Cook the bacon slices for a couple of minutes per side. Don’t cook until crispy. This will ensure that you will be able to fold the bacon around the scallops.
  5. When the scallops are cool enough to touch, cut or tear a piece of partially cooked bacon in half and wrap one half over the top of the scallop so that it meets itself underneath. Put a toothpick through the bacon to stick it in place.
  6. Repeat this with the remaining scallops.
  7. Put the scallops on their side in an oven-safe dish and brush with melted butter.
  8. Lightly season the scallops with salt, paprika and a pinch of ground pepper.
  9. Broil the scallops for 5 to 6 minutes or just until the edges begin to brown.
  10. Remove the scallops from the oven and add warm clam juice to the bottom of the baking dish.
  11. You may serve in the same dish.
