Check out Ray's recipes for Seared Scallops with Bacon and Scallions.


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 18 sea scallops
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (evoo - or vegetable oil)
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Crisp bacon in frying pan, under broiler, or in a microwave. When bacon is crisp, drain and chop, set aside.

    Season the scallops with salt and pepper. To a very hot skillet, add 1 tablespoon evoo (once around the pan), then place 9 scallops in the pan, 1 inch apart. Sear scallops 2 minutes on each side, until caramelized and opaque. Transfer to a platter and cover loosely with foil. Repeat with remaining oil and scallops.

    To serve, top scallops with chopped bacon bits and scallions by scattering them evenly over the scallops. Place party picks in a shot glass or small dish and set them on or near platter.
