Foodie Friday ~ Teriyaki Bacon Wrapped Scallops


1/2 cup teriyaki sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root

18 slices bacon, halved crosswise

12 large sea scallops, cut into thirds

36 toothpicks


Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.

Whisk teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, and ginger in a bowl.

Wrap each piece of scallop with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Dip each bacon wrapped scallop in the teriyaki sauce mixture and arrange on one of the prepared baking sheets.

Broil in preheated oven until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Flip scallops and transfer to the clean baking sheet and return scallops to the oven. Continue to broil until bacon is charred on the second side, about 6 minutes more.
