Scallops wrapped in Bacon and a bit of Levity

Ok, I started preparing these before I had read a recipe… Thats sort of the way I do things. SO I had actually cut my bacon and wrapped it around the scallops and was planning just to marinade in a bit of soy and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Then I thought Hey, why not look at a recipe… so I did.

One smart idea was to cook the bacon for 10 minutes before wrapping the scallops. This sounded great because I do recall last time I made these the bacon did not really crisp. So I unwrapped the scallops and spread the bacon out for a bit of cooking.

Meanwhile I dropped the scallops ( and the sticks) in a cup of soy with a bit of brown sugar. The recipe I had seen called for maple syrup, but I don’t like nor do I have maple syrup so just the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and the soy.

This is what the bacon looked like coming out

So I let it cool, then dumped it into the marinade for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

I spread them on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven, turned after 12 minutes. Let them cook another 10 minutes and all was yum!

“You know, the idea that you have to stay in your house is disturbingly close to house arrest,” Barr said. “I’m not saying it wasn’t justified. I’m not saying in some places it might still be justified. But it’s very onerous, as is shutting down your livelihood. So these are very, very burdensome impingements on liberty, and we adopted them … for the limited purpose of slowing down the spread – that is, bending the curve. We didn’t adopt them as the comprehensive way of dealing with this disease.”
