These bacon wrapped scallops make a delicious, fast and easy to make appetizer, I added a garlic Dijon sauce buy you can simplify it by just topping them with a little bit of butter, salt and pepper.
Have you ever tried to cook or  sear scallops and ended up with a rubbery, soupy mess? Here is why…
When buying scallops look for a label that says “chemical free” or “dry packed”, as they are often treated with phosphates in order to hold in moisture, thus increasing their weight. This will not only expose you to a chemical used in  soaps and detergents, but also as the water is released when you are cooking them, your dishes will end up watery and with a soapy taste.

Enjoy this protein, selenium, phosphorus and vitamin B12 filled treat.

  1. I always wondered why my scallops were so watery! I had no idea. Besides having fabulous healthy recipes, your cooking tips are the greatest! I’m not much of a cook. Learned a lot from you already!

  2. I used this recipe with one small add-a large pinch of cayenne pepper. OMG! Greatest tasting scallops I’ve ever had. I love scallops and haven’t found a restaurant yet that makes them this good and have it made totally Paleo/healthy.
