Bacon-wrapped scallops lightly marinated in a teriyaki, fresh grated ginger, and brown sugar sauce. These are always a huge hit at every party I go to. They disappear fast and then I'm always asked for the recipe. I often hear comments such as, What an awesome combination!!! and These are so additive!!

  • Whisk teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, and ginger in a bowl.

  • Wrap each piece of scallop with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Dip each bacon wrapped scallop in the teriyaki sauce mixture and arrange on one of the prepared baking sheets.

  • Broil in preheated oven until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Flip scallops and transfer to the clean baking sheet and return scallops to the oven. Continue to broil until bacon is charred on the second side, about 6 minutes more.

Followed recipe as is and these were perfect. For more of a teriyaki taste I will try marinating the scallops longer. Used low broil mostly and just watched them closely. NO changes necessary. Delicious Read More

This is as good as it gets for a bacon wrapped scallop recipe. The marinade is excellent. I make a homemade teriyaki sauce and marinate the scallops for at least an hour. This recipe is a winner for parties. Read More

I precook the bacon about 1/2 time needed as the scallops will overcook...Excellent otherwise..! Read More

Very nice recipe, made street tacos and used a tarragon aioli mentioned in this site, awesome! As others had mentioned I marinated the scallops for 30 minutes and baked the bacon ahead for 15 minutes minimizing the chance of over cooking the scallops, came out great with nice and crunchy bacon and perfect teriyaki scallops.
