Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together maple syrup, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard in a bowl until smooth. Add the scallops, and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate at least one hour.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with a sheet of aluminum foil.

  • Arrange bacon pieces on baking sheet so they do not overlap. Bake in preheated oven until some of the grease has rendered out of the bacon; the bacon should still be very soft and pliable, about 8 minutes. Remove bacon from the baking sheet and pat with paper towels to remove excess grease. Drain or wipe grease from the baking sheet.

  • Wrap each scallop piece with a piece of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Place onto baking sheet. Sprinkle the scallops with brown sugar.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the scallops are opaque and the bacon is crisp, 10 to 15 minutes, turning once.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Absolutely Divine!!! This is the easiest most forgiving recipe for scallops I have found! Our family loves, loves, loves these.... Simple, quick and convenient for a weeknight supper as for the company table. A note of caution for those that don't normally cook scallops: Do not over marinate as they will turn rubbery. Try this, I GUARANTEE you will not be disappointed!!!! Read More

while the marinade was fantastic the scallops were not a hit at my recent dinner party. not too difficult to make at all when following the time to a "T" the scallops did not come out chewy! would be a great recipe to add for those who love to try new food or love all varieties of seafood. not a great choice with finicky choosy or nervous eaters.

I make these every so often to ensure I don't get tired of them and they're awesome. I don't use the mustard because I've never liked it, and I think they turn out really well without it. My only advice would be not to over-marinade the scallops; 20 minutes would be fine. Otherwise they have a strange texture. Thank you for your recipe! Read More

I did not think this would end up good but it was!!!! I would say that you have to decide how sweat you want it and choose marinade time. Overnight gets very sweat and overly hides the seafood taste. 3 hours gets it about in the middle and still able to tast the scallops Read More

This is an awesome recipe, but I would not recommend marinating the scallops as long as written - there is a high chance they'll go rubbery on you. I marinated mine for about 15 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This recipe is excellent! I make this all the time for dinner parties and everyone loves them. When ever I tell people the scallops are marinated they're like "is that why they taste so good?". My husband eats these like they're going out of style which is why I have to make a ton! Read More

Wow, what an excellent recipe! Plus, it was unbelievably easy. I substituted turkey bacon and sugar free maple syrup to keep it light and was thrilled with the results. I used the frozen scallops from Publix. They're great to have in handy in the freezer for a quick easy meal. Read More

These were so tasty! They were sweet and savory and we served them nice and hot. They are almost a melt in your mouth texture. Everyone kept asking if there were more long after they had all been eaten. Use a good quality thick cut bacon for the best results. Though any bacon will still work. These will be a huge hit with anyone who like bacon or scallops. You have got to try these! Read More
