Teriyaki Bacon Wrapped Scallops


Bacon-wrapped scallops lightly marinated in teriyaki, freshly 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! These are so addictive!"

  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce

  • cup brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root

  • 18 slices bacon, halved crosswise

  • 12 large sea scallops, cut into thirds

  • 36 toothpicks


  1. Set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.

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

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

  4. Broil in preheated oven until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Flip scallops, 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.
