Everyone loves their morning bacon, but you can use bacon in many other recipes, for example, these bacon-wrapped scallops. The crispy and greasy bacon adds a buttery and smoky flavor to the scallops, and the end result is always heavenly, especially when they are grilled.

To make perfect grilled bacon-wrapped scallops, first you have to make sure that the scallops are tightly wrapped with the bacon. On the grill, remember to keep turning the skewers to get an even char on the bacon (you have to turn the skewers sideways so the bacon is in direct contact with the heat source to char nicely). Last but not least, do not overcook the scallops as they might lose all the natural sweetness and become rubbery.


Another recipe that is equally good is bacon-wrapped cherry tomatoes. If you have picky guests at your summer BBQ parties, make sure you have some bacon handy as these two recipes will make even the pickiest eater happy.

  1. How very interesting. I’ve barded chicken with bacon and wrapped dates with bacon too but have never thought to try it on scallops or cherry tomatoes. This is a must-try! Thanks.

    Simple but oh so delicious! Any suggestions for doing this without a grill?

  4. Yes, just pan-fry these. But use a toothpick to hold it and then pan-fry.

  5. Oh my goodness, these scallops wrapped with bacon are so delightful ! My sons will love this one. I must make it soon. Thanks for the recipe, Bee!

    I have tried Bacon wrapped Enoki Mushrooms and Asparagus and brushed with canola oil it was really delicious.

    Thank you as always Ms. Bee.

    Hi,I like your scallop and bacon recipe, but I was surprised to see the exact same photo used on someones instagram page. He is using other peoples photos and making out they are his. Do you want his account name, he has been deceiving a friend of mine
