Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings. Crumble the bacon once cool to the touch.

  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.

  • Heat the reserved bacon drippings in a separate skillet over medium heat. Stir the butter and garlic salt into the bacon drippings; allow the butter to melt completely. Cook the scallops in the butter mixture until there is a light brown coating on each side, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the scallops to a baking dish. Spoon the butter sauce over the scallops. Drizzle the horseradish sauce over the scallops and sprinkle with the crumbled bacon.

  • Bake the scallops under the preheated broiler until the sauce begins to bubble, about 1 minute.

This was really delicious!! I was not sure about the combination of flavors in this dish but everything worked very well together and it was very easy. Other reviewers were right about it being salty-the next time I make it I will lower the amount of garlic salt and add garlic powder to replace it because I think the bacon grease adds a key flavor component to the dish. Also because I did not have horseradish sauce I mixed up my own with horseradish mayo a touch of vinegar and pepper (you could make it with sour cream too but I have a dairy issue). One other thing that I did was streamline in terms of pans used. I cooked the bacon in the microwave then poured off the drippings. Also I used a broiler safe skillet and rather than move everything to a baking dish I just added the final ingredients to the pan and put it under the broiler. It tasted amazing and dirtied fewer dishes! We will definitely be making this again-thank you so much for the recipe!! Read More

Made this dish as directed. It was very salty. I would ommit the garlic salt and use fresh garlic. Also I would have preferred they more spicey. I would use more horseradish next time. Read More

I liked the concept of this recipe and will make again. However as a few reviewers noted salty as is. When you first begin making the recipe you do not realize that the scallops will be smaller once cooked. Then your eating 50/50 bacon and scallops. You do not need to add salt at all!! I can not imagine how this would have tasted had I added salt. Next time I might double the scallops and reduce the bacon to 3 slices. Read More

Delicious and so easy...Family loved them.. I would recommend mixing in the horseradish sauce so it is evenly incorporated throughout the dish. Served with a caesar salad and twice baked potatoes. Definate keeper!! Read More

original recipe is ridiculously salty but fixable. replace the garlic salt with garlic powder and cut the bacon portion in 1/2. Read More

These are seriously delicious. I love scallops but my husband isn't a big fan so I've been trying to find a recipe that we can both like and share. I made a tester batch last night as an appetizer and he really loved them. I think that having a good quality horseradish sauce is key to this recipe. Thanks for making my husband and I scallop compatible!: ) Read More
