10 Minute Cajun bacon wrapped scallops
What doesn't taste amazing cooked in bacon fat? These large, succulent scallops are fried for just 4 minutes total to get a beautiful golden brown color on the outside. The key to a perfect (not rubbery) scallop is timing! Only cook for 2 minutes (tops) on each side to get a restaurant quality scallop.
- 4 medium scallops, fresh
- 4 pieces bacon
- Salt and pepper
- 2-1/2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
- Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until about 4 minutes. You don't want the bacon crispy, otherwise you can't wrap it around the scallop.
- Once the bacon has done, save the fat in the pan. Add the Cajun seasoning to the pan and heat for about 1 minute. Add the scallops and cook until lightly brown on each side, or about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes.
- Once the scallops have cooked, wrap with bacon and use a toothpick to secure it. Serve warm and enjoy!
