This simple grilled scallop recipe is great served by itself as an appetizer or it can make a delicious accompaniment to any salad.

Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 pounds large fresh scallops
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • black pepper to taste
  • 8 wooden skewers


Combine vinegar, oil, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Add scallops to mixture and toss to coat. Cover and allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes at room temperature. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Cut bacon into thirds. Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop and thread onto skewers. There should be 3-4 scallops per skewer. Place on a lightly oiled grill rack and cook for 3 minutes per side.
