Bacon-Wrapped Scallop Sliders


Bacon-Wrapped Scallop Sliders

This surf and turf recipe combines two luscious delights: sea scallops and bacon.

It’s also wonderfully child-friendly, so it’s a good choice to serve a mixed generation group.

Choose a mayonnaise made with an oil that’s low in omega-6 fats, such as olive oil, macadamia nut oil, canola oil, or high oleic sunflower oil.

Prep time 15 minutes; Cook time 10 minutes
Makes 16 sliders

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mayonnaise*
  • 4 teaspoons pimenton (smoked paprika)
  • 1/8 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 medium or 3 cups sliced red onion
  • 1/8 cup organic red balsamic vinegar
  • 16 large (or 32 smaller) Wild Alaskan Sea Scallops, patted dry
  • 16 Bacon slices, fully-cooked but not crisp
  • 16 mini-hamburger buns (whole wheat), split
  • 16 small (3-inch) lettuce leaves

*Choose one made with an oil that’s low in omega-6 fats, such as olive oil, macadamia nut oil, canola oil, or high oleic sunflower oil.

Directions

  1. Blend mayonnaise and pimenton in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan. Stir in onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer one minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  3. Wrap each single scallop (or pair) with a cooked bacon slice. Grill or sauté scallops for 2 to 3 minutes per side, cooking just until scallops are opaque and bacon is crisp.
  4. Place buns on grill and lightly toast. To serve, spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on cut side of each bun. Place about 2 tablespoons onions on the bun bottoms, top with a bacon-wrapped scallop and lettuce leaf, then close with bun tops.
