- 2 pounds large sea scallops patted dry
- 1 pound bacon slices cut in half crosswise
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- cooking spray
Preheat the broiler. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Wrap a slice of bacon around each scallop and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the baking pan.
In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Brush half the mixture over the top of each of the scallops.
Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and scallops are cooked through. Brush the remaining sauce over the scallops halfway through the cook time.
Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
