Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Yield: 6 servings (as a meal)

Serving Size: 4 scallops

Ingredients

24 large sea scallops
12 slices bacon, halved (24 6-inch pieces)
2 tablespoons olive oil
pinch chili powder (or to taste)
pinch garlic powder

Instructions

Preheat oven broiler to 500. Place rack near the top of the oven.
Rinse and pat dry each scallop. Wrap each in a piece of bacon. Skewer with a toothpick or place 4 wrapped scallops onto a skewer.
In a small bowl, combine olive oil and seasonings.
When all scallops are wrapped and on rimmed baking sheet, brush with the seasoned olive oil.
Place under broiler for 7 minutes, flip, and bake another 7 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!

Watch the scallops closely in the oven. If too close to the broiler, the bacon drippings may smoke. If this should happen, lower your oven rack or simply move the scallops to a lower rack.
